Abstract

Successful solar system design is an iterative process involving consideration of many technical, practical, reliability, cost, code, and environmental considerations (Mueller Associates 1985). The success of a project involves identification of and intelligent selection among trade-offs, for which a proper understanding of goals, objectives, and constraints is essential. Given the limited experience available in the solar field, it is advisable to keep solar systems as simple as possible and not be lured by the promise of higher efficiency offered by more complex systems. Because of the location-specific variability of the solar resource, solar systems offer certain design complexities and concerns not encountered in traditional energy systems.
