Right Back At You: Being Human in a Simulated Universe – Steve O’Grady

Introducing a new title, Right Back At You by author and Oxford University Press Bioscience Award winner Steve O’Grady.

Right back at you holds a magnifying glass to the mysteries of our minds, exploring how our human minds are immersed in simulation because the universe is a simulation. Fight your fear of death, banish ghosts and see your reflection in a mirror in a brand new light. mind your language when you speak of mental-illness and face your fears of infection and disease. Scrutinising stars, understanding black holes, challenging superheroes, decoding consciousness and awakening from our dreams are equally important steps on the journey. Referencing tv shows, movies, science journals, comic books, art and literature, the book examines why our conflicts with ourselves create who we really are.

Grid-Connected & Standalone Solar Systems Design – Phineas S. Malujwa

As promissed, the new technical publication is now available, Grid-Connected & Standalone Solar Systems Design written be Phineas S. Malunjwa MSc, born in Nyamandlovu District, near Bulawayo city, Zimbabwe, he obtained his Masters of Science degree (Electrical Eng.) in 1985.

He worked for 9 years as a senior electrical building services engineer in the Public Works Department (Zimbabwe) and was involved in the design and inspection of solar energy projects. In addition he organized and chaired meetings, on solar energy projects, with engineers from the Public Works Department (Zimbabwe) and the Department of Energy (Zimbabwe).
From 12th to 16th February 1996, Phienas participated in a UNESCO sponsored sub-regional workshop entitled “Renewable Energy Sources”, held at SIRDC (Scientific & Industrial Research & Development Centre), Harare, Zimbabwe.

Book Synopsis:

The production of solar electricity is not as straight forward as that of conventional 9781912505319Electricity. This fact is explained by Chapter 2 (2. The Sun’s Energy), in order to adequately equip the designer with the knowledge of how to make use of the available Sunlight. Solar Cell Technology and Solar Cell efficiency, for both crystalline silicon and thin film cells, are discussed and explained, with the aim of enabling the designer/installer to make a better judgement/understanding when selecting type of module to use.

A proper selection of P.V. components is very essential for the P.V. system to function properly and to produce the expected power output. Components for both grid-connected and standalone P.V. systems, are adequately discussed and explained to enable the designer/installer to make an informed decision in the selection of components for the P.V. System.

Possible power losses from the P.V. system have been pointed out and how these power losses can be mitigated, have been discussed and explained. Therefore, the designer will be able to evaluate the actual power output from the P.V. System. Examples are given, e.g. 3.2 Example 3, showing how to determine energy available to the consumer, and 3.3 Example 4, showing how to determine size of P.V. array (KW). Other examples worked out, for both grid-connected and Standalone P.V. Systems, show adequate detail to the designer/Installer, on how to achieve a properly designed and installed P.V. system.
