Photovoltaic Systems & Lab
This course focuses on the design, selection and installation of solar photovoltaic systems. The course will include an in-depth exploration of the mathematical equations to ensure that the photovoltaic system design and installation is appropriate for its intended use and will meet all NEC Article 690 code requirements. Students will prepare a term-long project that will require students to research all components necessary for a Stand-Alone PV System. The labs will include desktop trainers which will simulate the “real-world” applications of PV systems and reinforce the principles of photovoltaics. Once students understand basic PV theory, they will then build an actual grid-tied life-sized mockup utilizing the actual components of a grid-tied PV system: PV module, PV combiner box, inverter, disconnects, metering, and grounding.
