SOLAR INSTALLATION AND ELECTRIC DESIGN
This course focuses on grid-¬direct PV systems, the largest and fastest growing segment of the PV industry, but covers material critical to understanding all types of PV systems.Experiment on PV cells, cells efficiency, light effects, weather and shadow effects, longitude and latitude, increase power generation It all starts with the fundamentals, and a solid understanding of various components, system architectures, and applications for PV systems. Other topics include site analysis, system sizing, array configuration, and performance estimation; electrical design characteristics such as wiring, overcurrent protection, and grounding; a detailed look at module and inverter specifications and characteristics; mounting methods for various roof structures and ground¬-mounts; and an introduction to safely and effectively commissioning grid-¬direct PV systems. which focus more specifically on particular system types, applications and design methodologies
OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE
Solar professionals who want to take their technical skills to the next level. This course is geared towards training PV technicians to safely and effectively perform operations and maintenance (O&M) tasks including inspections, commissioning, performance verification, and troubleshooting. Likewise, those managing fleet operations and system data will find this course challenging and valuable.
As more and more PV systems come online, the O&M field is rapidly expanding. Learn the theory and practical applications from instructors with real-world experience, using curriculum developed by an industry-leading team of experts. Students will become familiar with a wide range of advanced analytical tools, meters, and techniques – such as insulation resistance testers, IV curve tracers, and infrared cameras – and learn the advanced skills required to ensure PV systems operate safely and reliably.
This course is applicable to all sizes of grid-direct PV systems including residential, commercial, and large-scale
BATTERY-BASED PV SYSTEM
Energy storage has been a part of many PV systems since long, this market is growing like never before.this special course focus is on battery-based PV systems.Choose battery-based solar PV system configurations to meet specific requirements and their complexity far exceeds that of grid-direct PV systems. Components such as batteries, charge controllers, and battery-based inverters are covered in detail, along with safety and maintenance considerations unique to battery-based systems. Load analysis is critical to system design and will also be addressed along with other design criteria such as battery bank configuration and the electrical integration of the system. Evaluate site conditions and electrical loads for solar PV systems with energy storage
