Introduction to Renewable Energy Conversions examines all the major renewable energy conversion technologies, with the goal of enabling readers to formulate realistic resource assessments. The text provides step-by-step procedures for assessing renewable energy options, and then moves to the design of appropriate renewable energy strategies. The goal is for future engineers to learn the process of making resource estimates, through the introduction of more than 140 solved problems (and equal number of solved problems for teachers), over 165 engineering related equations, more than 120 figures and numerous tables to explain each renewable energy conversion type. A Solutions Manual, PowerPoint slides, and Lab Exercises will be available for instructors.
