Producing electricity from the sun using photovoltaic (PV) systems has become a major industry worldwide. But designing, installing and maintaining such systems requires knowledge and training, and there have been few easily accessible, comprehensive guides to the subject. Now, with Photovoltaics: Design and Installation Manual, a world-class solar energy training and education provider--Solar Energy International (SEI)--has made available the critical information to successfully design, install and maintain PV systems. The book contains an overview of photovoltaic electricity and a detailed description of PV system components, including PV modules, batteries, controllers and inverters. It also includes chapters on sizing photovoltaic systems, analyzing sites and installing PV systems, as well as detailed appendices on PV system maintenance, troubleshooting and solar insolation data for over 300 sites around the world. Used worldwide as the textbook in SEI's PV Design & Installation workshops, topics covered include: The basics of solar electricity PV applications and system components Solar site analysis and mounting Stand-alone and PV/generator hybrid system sizing Utility-interactive PV systems Component specification, system costs and economics Case studies and safety issues Photovoltaics guarantees that those wanting to learn the skills of tapping the sun's energy can do so with confidence. Solar Energy International (SEI) has the nonprofit mission to respond to the need for renewable energy education. Based in Carbondale, Colorado, and active around the world, SEI is a link between people and renewable energy resources, providing information, education and training to people who want to shape a sustainable future. SEI is recognized by the National Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) as dedicated independent provider of PV training programs that may be used toward attaining PV certification. Also, SEI is recognized as an Accredited Institution to offer PV training by the Institute for Sustainable Power (ISP).

In the introductory and concluding chapters this book strive to satisfy the needs of the interested lay reader by addressing the potential, advantages, and costs of solar power plants. For the interested student, scientist, or technically oriented lay person the physical principles of insolation, its variability, concentration, and most efficient use are developed in some detail. Finally, experimental and theoretical developments in the recently created field of solar driven chemistry (via thermal, quantum, or electrical excitation) are described. The contributions in this book are written by leading solar scientists and engineering experts whose extensive background and experience in solar energy lend authenticity and completeness to the book. Design aspects of, and results from large experimental and demonstration plants are described by individuals who were directly involved in the design and testing of many of these plants. Consideration of the viability and future economics of large-scale solar power generation provides an outlook on the energy contributions which can be expected from an optional future supply of abundant and renewable energy, having little impact on the environment. This provides the rationale for the continued commitment to the development of solar power technologies by researchers, engineers, and industry. The eventual depletion of, or future political attacks on our energy supply will have less serious impact once this renewable option is in place.

Countries around the world face increasing needs regarding the provision of environmentally sound and sustainable energy. Developing countries, in particular, face situations of limited energy resources, especially with regard to the provision of electricity in rural areas. There is an urgent need to address this constraint to social and economic development. This situation, however, presents significant opportunities and challenges for the greater use of renewable energy. Particular interest has focused on the use of solar photovoltaic systems for domestic use in rural areas. This Toolkit consists of two volumes--"Solar Photovoltaic Project Development and "Solar Photovoltaic Systems: Technical Training Manual. This title contains detailed text and graphics, while its companion volume is intended primarily as a teaching aid to support the Technical Training Manual, and to discuss wider issues relating to project development for photovoltaic solar systems. The overall goal of the Toolkit is toprovide comprehensive information and training material on the installation, operation, monitoring and evaluation, management, maintenance, rehabilitation, awareness raising, advocacy, innovation, policy and planning for PV systems. The Toolkit has its origins in material first produced in the Pacific, where solar photovoltaics and rural electrification were pioneered in the 1970s and 1980s. Facing the threats of global warming and sea-level rise, small island states have a particular interest in the success of renewable energy for sustainable development.
