What has changed between the first and second edition?
I've added about 25 more pages to the original book. I've updating figures and made the book more useful for learning about solar, lead acid and lithium batteries. Some of those changes are:
Expanded on Batteries
New Battery Chemistries
Problems with Cobalt supply chain
Improved BMS details
Second life and Repurposing used cells
New Microgrid section
Expanded on Inverters
Expanded on Generators
Improved Structural Design, Building/Electrical Code Compliance
Fixed typo errors (sorry about that!)
Temp coefficient calculation for open circuit voltage
Battery voltage expectations for sealed vs. flooded
