This thoroughly revised text, now in its third edition, continues to provide a detailed discussion on all the aspects of solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies from physics of solar cells to manufacturing technologies, solar PV system design and their applications. The Third Edition includes a new chapter on a€œAdvances in c-Si Cell Processes Suitable for Near Future Commercializationa€ (Chapter 8) to introduce the technological advancement in the commercial production to keep the readers up to date. Organized in three parts, Part I introduces the fundamental principles of solar cell operation and design, Part II explains various technologies to fabricate solar cells and PV modules and Part III focuses on the use of solar photovoltaics as part of the system for providing electrical energy. In addition to this, numerous chapter-end exercises are given to reinforce the understanding of the subject. The text is intended for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering for their courses on solar photovoltaic technologies and renewable energy technologies. The book is of immense use for teachers, researchers and professionals working in the photovoltaic field. In a nutshell, this book is an absolute must-read for all those who want to understand and apply the basics behind photovoltaic devices and systems.Sizing of PV modules: Our PV system design is being done in the reverse direction of the energy flow in the system as given in Fig. ... Efficiency of the batteries; a€c Temperature of the module; a€c Efficiency of the MPPT and charge controller unit; and a€c Dust ... The voltage handling capability of the controller circuit should be same as the system voltage, in this case 24 V. = 3963.7 Wh Solar radiation, capacityanbsp;...
