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.

John Maris – My Encounter with The Great Train Robbery: 55 Years Later, Man Who Discovered Robbers’ Secret Hideout Releases Memoir

Author John Maris’ ‘My Encounter with The Great Train Robbery – How I became a Marked Man’ tells the story of a fifty-year life in the wake of an unexpected yet profound discovery. Maris was the man who found the “Great Train Robbers’” secret hideout, 9781912505227spiraling his life into one of death threats, unwanted global fame and an eventual wrongful perjury charge. This is his story…told with uninhibited honesty.

This is a story of an alert member of the public who had his life and that of his family changed having notified the police of the whereabouts of the hideout of the Great Train Robbers. Within days his notoriety had spread worldwide and this began years of constant pressure, physical threats to him and his family, trauma and anxiety.

He had to take precautions at work in the hope of preventing an attack whilst working alone. Because of his careful detail in the evidence which he gave at the trial he was subjected to an attempt to frame him on a charge of perjury. Eventually he pondered the question, If a similar situation arose, would he act in the same way?

 “Life was simply never the same afterwards,” explains Maris. “What started as me reporting some strange behaviour on Leatherslade Farm to the Police descended into an endless barrage of threats. In fact, I was unable to leave my house without a wooden truncheon, that I felt I had to carry for protection.”

Continuing, “Of course, then the trial came, and I found myself being framed on a charge of perjury. It’s been an interesting five decades since that fateful day, and this is the first time I’ve told the story with such raw honesty and detail. It’s going to answer a lot of questions about my life, and those of the men who were responsible for the most fascinating crime in modern history.”

Ethan Ross’s ‘Point of No Return’ is an intense, vivid and gripping thriller that is the result

9781912505098

of hundreds of hours of research into anti-terrorist military operations. While fiction, it reads like a documentary – as a British SAS soldier is tasked with forming an anti-terrorist taskforce. However, Jack Copeland has other ideas…

The systematic destruction of several key US diplomatic installations in the Middle East by a ruthless terrorist campaign and the kidnapping of Charles Perez, the US Ambassador to Sierra Leone, forced the President to act. Jack Copeland is former British SAS now employed by the Americans to spearhead the anti-terrorist group ‘Scorpion’. The rescue mission cost lives, and Copeland realised that he was losing the support of the very people who had placed him in this position.

He had a hidden agenda that he knew needed the support and approval of his Commander-in-Chief, the President of the USA; he also knew that in order for the plan to succeed, there was one other person to whom he needed to turn.

The story is based on the author’s vast experience in the military and personal security.
