Detailed Electrical Design of Solar Power Plants (DC/AC)

About the Course

With the professional understanding of PVSyst/Helioscope in your bag, you are now equipped to create a fantastic sales pitch for your potential clients and you will most likely bag that order too.
But what’s next? The job of a solar engineer is not over yet! Once you receive that order, you will need to detail the potential solar plant. You will need to create a Bill of Material, create Build-to print drawings for your installation team, and more.
To detail the plant, solar engineers must train to be able to design and calculate all the important aspects of the solar plant such as modules, inverters, cables, circuit breakers, isolators, SPDs, earthing systems, and lightning arrestor systems. This DC/AC Electrical Design course along with our AutoCAD course[Upcoming], will enable you as a solar engineer to become a complete package. Someone who can handle a solar project from Enquiry to Execution.
This online course on electrical design will teach you how to design the DC/AC side of the solar plant, post which you can physically go and construct the solar plant.

For your ease of understanding, this online course has been broken down into 8 modules:

  • Solar panels and their specifications
  • Solar inverters and MPPT functionality
  • DC Side Electrical Design
  • AC Side Electrical Design
  • Single Line Diagrams[SLD]
  • High Voltage Design Consideration
  • Earthing System Consideration
  • Lightning Arrestors

This course is right for you, if

  1. You are aware of the basics of solar energy and solar sizing
  2. You have the basic knowledge of Voltage, Current, Three-Phase power/Single Phase Power

What can you do after taking this online course?

  1. Design and spec the electrical side of the Solar PV System
  2. Prepare a detailed Bill of Material for your project
  3. Prepare an SLD for local approvals
  4. Verify the electrical designs from your contractor/installer
