Description

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 “Advances in c-Si Cell Processes Suitable for Near Future Commercialization” (Chapter 8) to introduce the technological advancement in the commercial production to keep the readers up to the moment.

Organized in three parts, Part I introduces the fundamental principles of solar cell operation and design, Part II explains quite a lot of technologies to fabricate solar cells and PV modules and Part III makes a speciality of using solar photovoltaics as part of the system for providing electrical energy. Along with this, a large number of chapter-end exercises are given to fortify 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 will have to-read for all those who wish to understand and apply the basics at the back of photovoltaic devices and systems.
