Solar Engineering of Thermal Processes is recognized as the leading solar engineering text and reference. The early chapters cover the basics of solar energy and how we get energy from the sun, then readers are introduced to technologies that harvest, store, and deliver solar energy, such as photovoltaics, solar heaters, and cells. Applications of these technologies and how they are used in various market sectors are explored in the later chapters. This fifth edition offers in-depth guidance on the use of two key engineering software, Engineering Equation Solver (EES) and System Advisor Model (SAM), that allow for students and researchers to solve complex equations quickly and perform long-term or annual simulations. Part II will be updated to include all-new examples, performance data, and photos of solar energy applications today, and the concentrating solar power (CSP) chapter will be updated and expanded. The practice problems in the Appendix will be updated, and Instructors will have access to an updated Solutions Manual via a book companion website.
