Solar Design: Off-Grid and Storage System Simulations

About the Course

This course focuses on understanding the core concepts behind battery based solar power system design.
This course is divided into 4 parts:

  1. Understanding the Key Fundamentals
    In this part we will learn about analyzing the load profile at an hourly basis, understanding the daily variation of solar generation, and dynamic interaction between solar generation and load.
  2. Knowing Your 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 the parts above, using a case study, we’ll be making use of professional spreadsheet based tools and PVSyst/Helioscope reports to size up the battery bank and also look into designing that battery bank with off the shelf/commercially available components.
  4. Other Applications And Technology Comparisons Between Various Types Of Batteries
    This part shall focus on topics like Self Consumption and Peak Shaving applications. Apart from that, we will also have a look at the comparison between different battery technologies like Lead Acid and Lithium Ion.


This course is right for you, if

  1. You understand the basics of solar power operation and generation. You are also expected to have a fair understanding of the basics solar, including Solar Sizing, Azimurth, Tilt, Module selection and so on.
  2. You have prior experience with PVSyst, Helioscope or any other solar PV design software.
  3. You are familiar with terms like kW, kWh, Peak Load and Time of Use.
