Main description

The GreenSource guide to design and construction of large-scale solar power system projects

Large-Scale Solar Power System Design is the definitive, standard-setting solar power system design and construction resource. It is essential for consulting engineers, technology specialists, construction contractors, and project managers who wish to develop the skills necessary to address complex technical and management issues associated with large-scale, grid-connected solar power systems. Design methodologies outline all aspects of solar and electrical design and construction documentation in meticulous detail, making the information readily applicable to ground-mount, roof-mount, building-integrated, and carport-type solar power projects.

Large-Scale Solar Power System Design features:

  • Systematic engineering design document standards
  • Detailed installation diagrams
  • Design tables
  • Economic analysis of solar power systems, including power purchase agreements (PPAs)
  • Test and measurement procedures and charts
  • Photographs of actual systems being installed
  • Appendices that contain design tables and information about national solar power incentive programs

Complete coverage:
Solar Power System Technologies; Solar Power System Physics; Solar Power System Components; Photovoltaic Power System Feasibility Study; Solar Power System Costing; Solar Power System Design; Large-Scale Solar Power System Construction; Concentrator Type Photovoltaic Systems; Solar Power System Project Management; The Smart Grid Systems; Solar Thermal Power; Solar Power Financing and Feed-in Tariff Programs
