Earthscan Expert Series: Solar Farms
The market and policy impetus to install increasingly large-scale solar systems, or solar farms or parks, has seen products and applications develop ahead of the collective industry knowledge and experience.
Solar Farms fills this knowledge gap and brings together the latest technical, practical and financial information available to provide an essential guide to solar farms, from design and planning to installation and maintenance.
The book builds on the challenges and lessons learned from existing solar farms, that have been developed across the world, including in Europe, the USA, Australia, China and India. Topics covered include system design, system layout, international installation standards, operation and maintenance, grid penetration, planning applications, and skills required for installation, operation and maintenance. Highly illustrated in full colour, the book provides an essential practical guide for all industry professionals involved in or contemplating utility-scale, grid-connected solar systems.
