Stand-alone Solar Electric Systems
By Mark Hankins
One of the best ways to get power to remote, off-grid locations, whether in developed or developing countries, is through the use of solar electric systems. This practical guide describes how to plan, design and install solar electric systems in a manner that is hands-on, graphic and technically complete. Highly illustrated chapters cover:
• solar energy basics
• components of solar electric systems (modules, batteries, regulators, inverters and appliances)
• installation practice
• details on planning and servicing systems
• water pumping
• village electrification
This is the must-have guide for electric technicians and designers, development workers, and anyone who wants to install their own off-grid system.
"This series is pitched at just the right level for specialists – detailed, well illustrated, full of information, yet readable. You can buy similar books cheaper but you won't get the level of detail or the clarity of explanation and illustrations.— magazine.
