Best practices for the design and operation of energy systems Written by a global expert with 50 years of experience in the field, Energy Systems Design and Operation presents a formal, unified, and universal method for conceiving, designing, and operating the most appropriate energy system in any given situation. This authoritative guide describes how to express the scientific, technical, and economic parameters of an energy system in universal terms, and then reliably conduct its engineering and evaluation in those terms. The book also includes the algorithm and functional specification of the computer program for the unified method, application techniques, and software examples with source code. Learn how to: Develop a plan for adopting a unified method for energy systems Gather and process required information Formalize a procedure for the conversion, exchange, and storage of energy Extend the formal procedure to a unified method for the concept, design, and operation of energy systems Meet requirements for computing with a unified method Use and benefit from a unified method with real-world demonstrations of energy system operation and design Simulate and optimize energy systems with the unified method
CoverMates – Air Conditioner Cover – 21W x 2.5D x 15H – Diamond Collection – 2 YR Warranty – Year Around Protection - Cream
Our outdoor A/C covers have always been some of our most popular items. Since we know people need to keep their A/C's protected, it only made sense to introduce a line of Indoor Air Conditioner Covers.Since they're designed for indoor use rather than out, these covers are made of quilted polyester fabric with a diamond stitch pattern. They can be used with window mounted or through the wall air conditioners and are great at preventing dust, dirt, and other small debris from clogging up you're A/C unit when it's not in use. A fitted elastic band helps keep the cover on tight and the polyester material is very easy to clean - just give it a spot cleaning as needed or run it through your washing machine on a gentle cycle.An indoor A/C may have it easier than an outdoor, but it still needs to be properly protected to ensure a long life. Cover yours with our Indoor Air Conditioner Covers and it'll be running strong for years to come!
This book provides readers with essential knowledge enabling the successful design of today's new energy efficient HVAC systems. The author introduces important concepts such as Knowledge Categorization, Performance Based Design Standards, and Quantification of Uncertainty in Energy Modeling for Buildings. Pivotal topics that all HVAC and architectural engineers must master in order to navigate the green building renaissance are given focused attention, including the role of renewables, air quality, automatic controls, and thermal comfort. Relevant ASHRAE standards, as well as sustainability scoring systems such as BREEAM, HQE, LEED and CASBEE are explained in depth. Armed with the material contained in this practical reference, students and practitioners alike will become more effective and prepared for engineering success.

Solar Energy presents an introduction to all aspects of solar energy, from photovoltaic devices to active and passive solar thermal energy conversion, giving both a detailed and broad perspective of the field. It is aimed at the beginner involved in solar energy or a related field, or for someone wanting to gain a broader perspective of solar energy technologies.A chapter considering solar radiation, basic principles applied to solar energy, semiconductor physics, and light absorption brings the reader on equal footing with the technology of either solar generated electrical current or useful heat. Details of how a solar cell works and then production of current from a photovoltaic device is discussed. Characterization of a solar cell is examined, allowing one the ability to interpret the current-voltage relation, followed by discussion of parameter extraction from this relation. This information can be used to understand what limits the performance of a given solar cell with the potential to optimize its performance. Applications of solar thermal energy are reviewed in detail from passive applications, for example the solar chimney, to active, such as the solar (power) tower, flat plate water heater, and solar thermal electricity generation. Consistency of analysis between the solar thermal applications is used enabling the reader to fully appreciate similarities and dissimilarities between these technologies. Ultimately, the scientist or engineer can understand existing systems, either photovoltaic or solar thermal devices, and design their own technology given the information in this book.

This comprehensive textbook takes you through everything you need to know about solar energy from the physics of photovoltaic (PV) cells through to the design of PV systems for real-life applications. Solar Energy is an invaluable reference for researchers, industrial engineers and designers working in solar energy generation. The book is also ideal for university and third-level physics or engineering courses on solar photovoltaics, with exercises to check students’ understanding and reinforce learning. It is the perfect companion to the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Solar Energy (DelftX, ET.3034TU) presented by co-author Arno Smets. The course is available in English on the nonprofit open source edX.org platform, and in Arabic on edraak.org. Over 100,000 students have already registered for these MOOCs.
This manual is a guide for analyzing the economics of energy efficiency and renewable energy (EE) technologies and projects. It is intended to help EE analysts determine the appropriate approach or type of analysis and the appropriate level of detail. It also assists EE analysts in completing consistent analyses using standard assumptions and bases, when appropriate. In addition to containing information on primary economic measures and fundamentals of finance, the manual focuses on the special considerations required in the economic evaluation of EE systems.
