Editorial Reviews

Review

Throughout the text, it is abundantly clear the author is a knowledgeable engineer with considerable experience in the diverse sciences and technologies that provide the foundations of wind and photovoltaic power generation. It is also obvious that he is an experienced teacher, because the presentations are technically accurate, well organized, effectively paced, and appropriately targeted for the mid- to upper-level undergraduate student with reasonable technical exposure and interest. I wish I could have had this book when I taught my own alternative energy classes to Mechanical Engineering undergraduates.

By C. Tenreiro Leiva on December 17, 2009
Format: Hardcover
From the title of the book it could be expected a share of both topics, wind and solar energy, however the book is full of wind power analysis everywhere,concentrating solar power is almost non existing, just a couple of pages on chapter 17, and considering the number of applications and complexity of this topics it deserves a lot more than that. So the book is nice but one should not expect too much of anything but wind energy, which is fine. On photovoltaic there is not much either, including nothing on emerging technologies in the field, so it is fairly classic what you have there for conventional design but not giving any clue of what comes next. For instance flexible systems for non flat roof applications or any other non regular shape buildings or semi transparent components. When considering grid connections it goes again for wind almost inmediately. This is fine but my point is whay do not call the book "wind power with some solar..." instead of giving the wrong impression ?, so I give 4 starts for wind and 2 for solar (really it should be just one) giving 3 as average.

I had to get this book for school, for a renewable energy class. It has a lot of outdated stats in the book. Its really not the writer, as far as the history of wind, pvs, and batteries go, he does a good job explaining, but that is just it, Its a history lesson in renewables. Do not get this book for projects
