By: Kalogirou, Soteris.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Elsevier c2014Edition: Second edition.Description: xx, 819 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9780123972705 (hbk.); 0123972701 (hbk.).Subject(s): Mechanical engineering\Energy engineering | Solar energyDDC classification: 621.47 Summary: Annotation Solar Energy Engineering: Processes and Systems covers all areas of solar energy engineering, from the fundamental level to the highest level of current research. The book includes subjects such as: Energy-related environmental problemsSolar collectorsSolar water heating, space heating and coolingIndustrial process heatSolar desalinationPhotovoltaicsSolar thermal power systems The book also covers modeling of solar energy systems, including the use of artificial intelligence in modeling and performance prediction. With the threat of global warming and the gradual depletion of petroleum supplies, solar electric power is rapidly becoming a significant part of our energy mix. This book will be a valuable resource for mechanical, electrical and chemical engineers as well as academics, energy consulting companies, and solar energy companies. Environmental consequences of solar energySolar desalination including indirect systemsModeling and performance prediction of solar energy systemsWorked examples and case studies.
