The book "Top 40 Costly Mistakes Solar Newbies Make" is a simple and practical guide that could save you a lot of money, headaches and time during the planning, buying, implementation and operation phase of your solar power system. Whether you have decided to buy a solar electricity system or assemble it yourself, you need a guide. There are thousands of books, articles, leaflets, forums and many other resources available online telling you what to do. However, it is always easy first to find out what NOT to do, and get that in a straightforward and comprehensible manner, in the form of practical tips and hints given by engineers with a long-term experience in electrical and electronic engineering. Do you know when you need a stand-alone system and when - a hybrid one? No matter whether you are a potential buyer or an avid do-it-yourselfer, you are probably curious to find out the best site in your property for a solar array to install. Or you are eager to know which solar panel type is the best for your case? Let's say you're a solar system buyer. Are you aware of solar panel guarantee? Do you know how to benefit from free solar panel schemes? The most important however - are you sure you can seed the 'good' solar offers from the 'bad' ones? Or you're a solar do-it-yourselfer and want to implement a solar system all by yourself. Surely you need to know the most common mistakes in panel installation or system sizing. What system voltage would be best for your system? Do you know how to choose the right type of battery and charge controller? ....Or how to avoid some mistakes in connecting system components, which could ruin your solar project? Here are the most common groups of mistakes commonly committed by people who have decided to go solar: General mistakes and misconceptions Mistakes during location assessment Mistakes with solar panels Mistakes in solar system sizing Mistakes in assembling the system components Mistakes in buying a solar system Mistakes in solar power system maintenance Although solar electrics are everywhere around us and there are tons of resources available on this topic, you don't need to be an expert to assess what is good for your specific case. Neither you have to refer to costly solar consultants to reveal you the solar basics. This book can save you both money and trouble down the road. It is frankly written by experts for everyone who cannot get started. Get started your solar journey today!"

The book "The Truth About Solar Panels: The Book That Solar Manufacturers, Vendors, Installers And DIY Scammers Don't Want You To Read" has been created as an answer to widely spread misleading, rehashed or low quality information about solar panels written by some unqualified authors. Unfortunately such questionable information is flooding not only the internet but also the other powerful media and digital platforms. The authors of this book hold master degree in engineering. Their experience helps them to present the complex world of solar energy in a manner that is both practical and easy understood by a broad audience. The book is an honest revelation about solar panels described beyond the hype and beyond the stigma. If you are going to invest in solar panel system or to upgrade already installed one this revelation is also about your money. Buying, building or installing a solar electric (photovoltaic, PV) system for your home, business, vehicle or boat is a complex project, and there are a lot of different issues involved. Whether you plan to do it yourself or hire a professional to do it for you, you will need to know the correct terminology to use to research, design, purchase and communicate about it. It must be emphasized that the right choice of the solar panel is about 80% responsible for the overall performance of your solar power system. Get it wrong and you'll lose a lot of money and get many headaches in years to come. The book "The Truth About Solar Panels" could save you a lot of money and headaches for years to come, since it: Gives you actionable and practical information about different types of solar panels, their pros, cons, risks, characteristics and warranties Honestly compares and reveals advantages and disadvantages of brand new, second hand and do-it-yourself solar panels in a unique manner. Furthermore this book will help you: -Choose the best solar panel in terms of price performance suitable for your solar project -Immediately spot the "unfair" marketing tricks used to sell you an overpriced underperforming solar panel of questionable warranty -Judge the quality of solar quotes and filter out the disadvantageous ones. -In fact most solar panel manufacturers, vendors and installers take the advantage of the seeming complexity of solar parameters to market you an inferior solar panel in a better light and higher price, while at the same time being in line with the customer law for consumer rights. This book is for anyone who seeks certain step-by-step practical information about solar panels, their performance and proper selection: -homeowners -do-it-yourself solar enthusiasts -lovers of recreational vehicles, campers, boats and other outdoor activities -survivalists -potential investors in solar power -business owners interested in solar power -students -teachers -people interested in becoming solar installers -people working in the sales and marketing area of solar power and green energy industry -many others keen in solar power and renewable energy. If you are a customer, the book gives all actionable information to seek the answer of the all important and sensitive to solar installer, vendors questions. If you are from solar seller side, this book helps you get prepared to answer those tricky questions. You can use this guide: -As a reference while you are planning your PV system -When you are surfing the web pricing solar panels -When you are talking with solar vendors and installers.

Provides simplified MATLAB codes for analysis of photovoltaic systems, describes the model of the whole photovoltaic power system, and shows readers how to build these models line by line. This book presents simplified coded models for photovoltaic (PV) based systems using MATLAB to help readers understand the dynamic behavior of these systems. Through the use of MATLAB, the reader has the ability to modify system configuration, parameters and optimization criteria. Topics covered include energy sources, storage, and power electronic devices. This book contains six chapters that cover systems’ components from the solar source to the end-user. Chapter 1 discusses modelling of the solar source, and Chapter 2 discusses modelling of the photovoltaic source. Chapter 3 focuses on modeling of PV systems’ power electronic features and auxiliary power sources. Modeling of PV systems’ energy flow is examined in Chapter 4, while Chapter 5 discusses PV systems in electrical power systems. Chapter 6 presents an application of PV system models in systems’ size optimization. Common control methodologies applied to these systems are also modeled. Covers the basic models of the whole photovoltaic power system, enabling the reader modify the models to provide different sizing and control methodologies Examines auxiliary components to photovoltaic systems, including wind turbines, diesel generators, and pumps Contains examples, drills and codes Modeling of Photovoltaic Systems Using MATLAB: Simplified Green Codes is a reference forresearchers, students, and engineers who work in the field of renewable energy, and specifically in photovoltaic systems.
