This book focuses on the rapidly maturing solar photovoltaic industry, which is achieving an ever-increasing share of U.S. and global power production.

There is a growing need for all stakeholders - owners, maintenance technicians, utilities, and installers - to fully understand the operations and maintenance of PV systems, and how to monitor and diagnose systems post-installation. Recognising this need, this book covers monitoring and diagnostic techniques and technologies, including how to identify the causes of poor performance, and measure and verify power production. Drawing on global case studies, it details how to achieve optimal PV power output in the field through an overview of basic electrical, the solar PV module and balance of system, and processes and software for monitoring, measurement and verification. It also provides an overview of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioner's (NABCEP) new PV System Inspector credential, which will be outlined in the final chapter.

Equipping the reader with the knowledge and confidence required to maximize the output of solar PV installations, Solar Photovoltaics Power Optimization will be an essential resource for PV practitioners and students.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A well-operating solar array system begins at the design and planning stage, and continues through its entire operating life. Michael's book is an enjoyable look through the entire solar O+M lifecycle. He combines both theoretical background of what the system is doing, with practical considerations for what can go wrong and how to troubleshoot. This book has something for everyone, from those new to the industry to seasoned veterans." -- Paul Grana, Co-founder of Folsom Labs, USA , and developer of HelioScope, a leading solar PV design software
