solar engineering body


Through several editions, “Solar Engineering of Thermal Processes” has become a classic solar engineering text and reference. This revised fourth edition offers current coverage of solar energy theory, systems design and applications in different market sectors along with an emphasis on solar system design and analysis using simulations to help readers translate theory into practice. The fourth edition features increased coverage of leading-edge topics such as photovoltaics and the design of solar cells and heaters. Also, there is a brand-new chapter on applying CombiSys (a readymade TRNSYS simulation program available for free download) to simulate a solar-heated house with solar-heated domestic hot water.
