Training: Design Principles of Utility-Connected PV Systems

08 Jun 2021

12:30 GMT | 13:30 WAT | 14:30 SAST | 15:30 EAT

This entry-level PV system design workshop is recommended for anyone new to the solar market and interested in navigating their way into this fast-growing industry.  With a focus on utility-connected PV systems (the largest and fastest-growing market sector), the class begins by introducing primary components, terminology, and applications for solar electric (PV) systems. We will discuss concepts that are critical for good design, and how they are applied in practice. 

This workshop will provide a solid, basic foundation from which a larger exploration of utility-connected PV systems can be launched. 

Presenter: Kristopher Sutton, Co-Director, Middle East and Africa Solar Energy International, USA
