This solar energy training program focuses on understanding and applying the core concepts behind the engineering and design of battery based solar PV plants.
This online training course is divided into 4 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, understanding 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 be learn how to read the battery specification sheets and what parameters are most important to a solar plant designer.
3) Sizing Your Battery Bank
Based on the concepts learnt in parts above, 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 that battery bank with off-the-shelf/commercially available components, with illustrations using LG Chem, Tesla, Emerson Liebert, BYD, etc.
4) Other Applications And Technology Comparisons Between Various 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.
You can find the detailed syllabus of the course under the ‘Syllabus’ tab.
