About this book

Large Scale Solar Power Systems is a comprehensive discussion and economic analysis of large-scale solar power systems, specifically referencing critical issues related to design, construction, installation and financing. It provides practical guidelines for large-scale commercial and industrial solar power projects. Engineering design and construction methodologies provide a step-by-step walkthrough of all aspects of solar power systems. Design methodologies outline the specific requirements of solar and electrical design and construction documentation in meticulous detail, which can be readily applied to ground mount, roof mount, building integrated (BIPV) and carport-type solar power projects. In view of the importance of solar power systems as a viable present and future energy resource, the book includes a dedicated chapter on smart grid transmission and large-scale energy storage systems.
