Solar Photovoltaics and Solar Collectors for Domestic hot water Systems
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
This job requires knowledge of Solar PV systems and will require technical writing skills relating to the topic. I would help writing a report that summarizes Solar Photovoltaic systems and Solar Domestic hot water systems used in residential construction. This report should include the following
-Introduction into the topic of Photovoltaics (how they work, characteristics, and BRIEF history)
-Introduction into the topic of solar collectors used in residential hot water systems (how they work, components, characteristic, etc.)
-strategies used in a successful GRID TIE PV system (Advantages such as flexibility, cost, and reliability)
-strategies for a successful solar domestic hot water system and components of SDHW system
-components of a grid tied system (explain inverter,
-different types of PV systems available and regularly used for residential applications (pole mount, roof mount, battery back-up etc.) There is no need to go into much detail on a battery backup system.
-Future prospects such as growing market, developments, potential to reduce CO2 emmissions, etc.
-Diagrams of how both systems work with components clearly labeled (should include a figure of a grid tie system without battery backup for PV and also a solar domestic hot water system)
-pictures of actual systems
This report should be at least 15 pages (10 pages on photovoltaics and 5 pages on solar domestic hot water) in length (not including figures and pictures). Ideally I would like general knowledge relating to these systems and figures and diagrams are encouraged but should be referenced. Please reference all cited information. Plagiarism is unacceptable
