Overview

About the Course

This solar energy training program focuses on understanding and applying the core concepts of engineering and designing storage based solar PV plants. 

This online training course is divided into four parts: 

1) Understanding the Key Fundamentals of Off Grid Solar PV Plants
In this part of the course, we will learn about analyzing the load profile at an hourly basis, understand the daily variation of solar generation, and the dynamic interaction between solar generation and the load. 

2) Understanding Storage and Technicalities of a Battery
This section is dedicated to learning about the various specifications of batteries and what they mean. We will also learn how to read the battery specification sheets and what parameters are most important to a solar PV plant designer.

3) Sizing Your Battery Bank
Using case studies, we will make use of professional spreadsheet tools along with PVSyst/Helioscope reports to size up the battery bank and also look into designing the battery bank with off-the-shelf and commercially available components, with illustrations using LG Chem, Tesla, Emerson Liebert, BYD, and others.

4) Other Applications And Comparison Between Types Of Batteries
This part shall focus on topics such as Self Consumption and Peak Shaving applications. We will have a look at the comparison between different battery technologies like Lead Acid and Lithium Ion. We will conclude the course by discussing hybrid solar PV systems and micro-grid solar PV plants.
