One of eight new renewable-alternative energy titles, “The Performance of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Systems” offers state-of-the-art information on performance analysis, measurement and assessment
Elsevier, the information analytics company specializing in science and health, today announced The Performance of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Systems: Analysis, Measurement, and Assessment, an essential reference for research and development professionals and engineers working on concentrated solar power systems, and for postgraduate students studying CSP. Edited by Peter Heller, the book provides state-of-the-art information on modeling, measurement and assessment of the performance of CSP components and systems in a comprehensive, compact and complete manner. Elsevier also announced the publication of seven additional renewable and alternative energy books.
The Performance of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Systems first introduces CSP systems and the fundamental principles of performance assessment, and then explores the component performance of mirrors and receivers. The book also looks at system performance assessment, durability testing, and solar resource forecasting for CSP systems, wrapping up with an outlook on the actual methods and instruments for performance and durability assessment currently under development.
