JOHN A. Subjects. Duffie, William A. Beckman. Convection and radiation, properties of materials, components, systems and applications to active space and water heating are discussed. Includes examples and problems of tabulated radiation data and conversion factors.

The updated, cornerstone engineering resource of solar energy theory and applications. Solar technologies already provide energy for heat, light, hot water, electricity, and cooling for homes, businesses, and industry. Because solar energy only accounts for one-tenth of a percent of primary energy demand, relatively small increases in market penetration can lead to very rapid growth rates in the industryâ??which is exactly what has been projected for coming years as the world moves away from carbon-based energy production. Solar Engineering of Thermal Processes, Third Edition provides the latest thinking and practices for engineering solar technologies and using them in various markets. This Third Edition of the acknowledged leading book on solar engineering features: Complete coverage of basic theory, systems design, and applications Updated material on such cutting-edge topics as photovoltaics and wind power systems New homework problems and exercises

Purchased this as required materials for a class, and I am now obsessed with solar engineering.
Firstly, I want to say how hilarious I found it that the back says it is the "Bible of Solar Engineering". But upon having read 75% of it thus far, I think that is the best way to describe it. Anything you need is in there, and then some.
As for the reading level, the portions with equations are obviously a bit more of a technical read, and you won't get the most out of this book that you can unless you plug some of these equations in MATLAB, or some other form of computing software, but the material itself is very attainable.
Highly recommend.

Great book and great read for any serious-minded engineer working in the alternative energy field. Its a good compilation from the folks in Wisconsin, written in clear and concise language. It provides with the background to both design of solar energy systems and assessment of existing solar systems to optimize for efficiency.

Bought this book as part of my reading for an introductory solar energy course. Being quite new to the physics behind solar energy, I was extremely satisfied with the explanations and worked examples that are included in the first few chapters of the book. It is actually referred to as the "bible" of solar energy engineering by my lecturer.

Will update my rating next year when I use the book for an advanced solar energy course.

A classic in the field, so what can I say, it is fully recommended for learning/teaching as well as for direct reference when doing some calculation or even having to write an article on the topic.

I knew nothing about solar panels prior to this and this book helped me learn a great deal. However, one thing I disagree with a little in the book is how detailed it gets on some parts, mainly when it starts talking about the make up of the coatings on solar panels in such chemistry language. With that in mind though, you can easily just skip that chapter and no harm no foul

Brand new!

As far as textbooks go the reading is dry as usual but there are several options presented for modeling solar radiation of varying difficulty. Info ranges from graphs to give intuition about changes in solar collector tilt to numerical models that would take 10 minutes just to punch in all the numbers. Quite information intensive as it should be.
The book smells like cat peed on it. It's pungent. It's also full of notes and highlights.
