INRE 20040 - Construction, Commissioning, and Troubleshooting

0.75 CR
Using knowledge of solar fundamentals and photovoltaic theory, applying the proper design and calculations, the final step will be the actual installation start-up and if needed, troubleshooting the system. Careful planning and calculations are lost if the end product, in this case, a Photovoltaic system, is not installed mechanically and electrically correctly. It is the responsibility of the PV technician to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and industry standards for a successful project. This module will give you the advanced information required for the final array connections as well as the proper procedures to commission and troubleshoot PV systems.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Understand the safety requirements both in the design and application of a solar system.
  2. Install photovoltaic systems in accordance with local and national codes.
  3. Calculate system and component size based on environmental conditions.
  4. Demonstrate the proper use and operation of a photovoltaic system.
  5. Demonstrate the proper care and maintenance of the photovoltaic system components.
