The catalogue builds on both the earlier edition of The Power Guide and The Equipment Directory produced for training courses by the Technology and Development Group of the University of Twente in the Netherlands. The data has been comprehensively revised and updated on the basis of research carried out by members of the Technology and Development Group, Densi Tech BV of the Netherlands, and Intermediate Technology in the UK. The Power Guide will facilitate decision making by providing guidelines most appropriate renewable energy source as well as providing information on hundreds of products from almost 500 manufacturers and suppliers in over 40 countries throughout the world, covering the following areas:ac solar photovoltaic equipmentac wind pumps and wind generatorsac micro-hydro equipment, hydraulic ram pumps and water current turbinesac biomass pre-treatment. combustion and steam systems, and gasifiers.The information is divided into chapters by energy source, each with an introduction containing guidelines for equipment selection and the possibilities and constraints of using that source. This is followed by manufacturersq data with key information about the equipment. Guidelines are also included for the selection of internal combustion engines, and solar-thermal, biogas and ethanol equipment. This is essential reading for all those who are interested in renewable energies or responsible for selecting energy equipment throughout the world.An inverter, to convert low voltage DC into the more familiar AC supply, is sometimes included. Example Performance 780Wh/day at 5kWh/m2/day; 480- 2200Ah; 12V The system will supply 780 watt-hours per day when the insolation is ... Example Performance 400W; 12/24V DC to110/220VAC; 50/60Hz Power rating 400 watts; converts DC, at 12 or 24V, to AC at 110 or 220V; the AC frequency is 50 or 60anbsp;...
