E-084 Photovoltaic Project Analysis: 2 PDH
Description of the Photovoltaic Project Analysis course
The Photovoltaic Project Analysis 2 hour PDH online course is a part of the Electrical category courses.
This course describes photovoltaic systems (PV modules, batteries, power conditioning, generators, and pumps) and discusses the photovoltaic markets including on-grid, off-grid and water pumping applications.
In this course calculation methods used for PV project modelling have been shown in detail. The tilted irradiance calculation algorithm and the PV array model are common to all applications. The tilted irradiance calculation uses an hourly model extended to take into account tracking surfaces. The PV array model takes into account changes in array performance induced by ambient temperature. The On-grid model and the Water pumping model are relatively simple models based on assumed average efficiencies. The Off-grid model is more complex and allows for a distinction between matched, continuous and intermittent loads which may have an influence on the amount of energy going through the battery.
This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of setting PV project. Presented details cover issues related to technical and financial implementation and exploitation of PV systems. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address PV terms, methods of operation and how to set up detailed technical and financial feasibility model.
At the end of the course you will gain the following knowledge and skills:
- Basic theory and photovoltaic technology background
- Description of photovoltaic system components
- Photovoltaic market applications (on grid / off-grid)
- Photovoltaic project modelling
- Basis of solar energy
- PV array and water pumping model
- Array, battery and generator sizing
