					Large Scale Solar Power System Design
An Engineering Guide for Grid-Connected Solar Power Generation




Peter Gevorkian, Ph.D., P.E.
A comprehensive engineering design and construction reference for engineers, architects,
contractors and technology specialists. This book provides practical design and installation
guideline for large scale commercial and industrial solar power projects. Engineering design and
construction methodologies outlined cover step by step walk-through of all aspects of solar
power systems. Design methodologies outline all aspects of solar & electrical design and
construction documentation in meticulous detail, which could readily be applied to ground
mount, roof mount, building integrated (BIPV) and carport type solar power projects.

Large Scale Solar Power Systems Design includes comprehensive coverage of economic analysis
of solar power systems, including power purchase agreement (PPA) contracts. Appendices
contain valuable design tables, and national solar power incentive programs.
