Solar PV and PV power plants introductory training course 1 day

A one day introductory solar training course covering the technical basics and the development process of PV power plants.

This one-day training course covers the technical basics of solar PV, starting with a PV module up to a PV power plant. we will focus on typical aspects of the interface between PV power plants and the electricity grid. Contrary to our "standard" introductory course on Solar PV, less emphasis will be on the cost aspects. In the first part of the course you will get an introduction to quality assessment of PV components and power plants. The second part of the course focuses on the PV project life cycle and the trainees are taken through the development phases of a large scale PV power plant.  

Course outline:

  • Technical basics of PV power plants
    - the PV module
    inverters
    - foundation & mounting structures
    - PV power plant design
    - SCADA system

  • PV power plants in the electricity grid
    requirements for generators
    - other grid support functions
    - possibilities of curtailment

  • Quality aspects
    overview of IEC standards
    - PV modules standards and testing
    - inverter standards and testing
    - quality in PV power plants

  • PV life cycle focus
    feasibility
    - development
    - pre-construction
    - construction
    - O&M

  • PV Project design game: experience situations market actors find themselves in
  • Q & A session and topics to be addressed resulting form participating in the course

For more information about this training course please refer to the leaflet.

Who should attend?

This training course is designed for anyone who are relatively new to the field of solar PV and who want to obtain a certain basic technical knowledge about solar PV and learn more about the development process of PV power plants.
