PV Systems or Photovoltaic Systems, are based on the transformation of the Sunlight into electricity, the implementation of this systems is growing really fast, so it’s really important for engineering professionals to know the concepts related and how to design and install PV Systems.
What Students will learn in the course?
In this course, we are going to learn from the basics concepts related to Solar Energy and Solar radiation to the design of a PV System. We are going to check for worldwide databases and how to use it, in order to find information about the solar radiation levels and temperatures on the site of installation which are the principal parameters to define a PV System. By the end of this course, you will be able to design a PV System from the beginning.
