Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE ELECTRICIAN'S GREEN HANDBOOK is the ideal book for anyone with an interest in the inner workings of alternative energy systems. This book is written by an electrician about electrical systems for electricians, maintenance personnel and those looking to expand their knowledge in alterative energy systems. Real world state of the art components are used in this book, complete with details and product specifications. Alternative energy systems discussed include Solar, Wind, Hydrogen and Battery Backup Systems. Unlike most other books written on the subject, THE ELECTRICIAN'S GREEN HANDBOOK, provides readers with an understanding of these systems from an installation and maintenance point of view. Discussed in detail are the circuit configurations of stand-alone inverters, string inverters, central inverters, micro-inverters and rectifiers, which are the key components of any alternative energy installation used today. The National Electrical Code (NEC) 2011 is used throughout the text and systems are taken apart and the NEC 2011 is examined for each part of the systems. Monitoring the output of alternative energy systems is not only required for maximum efficiency, it is essential. This book covers the components, systems and topologies for monitoring the system functions and performance and is a must for the journeyman electrician and electrical students of all levels.
