To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement industry needs to become more sustainable. For this electrification of the industry to be able to use green energy sources such as solar will play an important role. Solar photovoltaic systems can be located directly on an industrial site to provide electrical power, but where to start from the perspective of design, commissioning, maintenance, and intermittency in power production?

This training course takes participants through the steps from designing to operating a solar photovoltaic system on an industrial site. The first modules explain the fundamental principles, the major components needed, and what legislation needs to be adhered to. System design calculations are then explained, including how these should be presented, requirements from the grid, and how to deal with underperformance. Participants are then taken through the installation, testing, and commissioning steps. The course concludes with two case studies based on real-life solar photovoltaic installations.

The course consists of 10 hours of live sessions with the instructors. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course, you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

Live sessions

This course consists of instructor-led group sessions, these group sessions can be Virtual or Onsite. During these sessions participants can ask questions to the instructor which are discussed, as well as questions submitted beforehand in the learning portal.

After each live session used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal. Participants receive 1-year unlimited access to this material.

Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

Typically the training course would be scheduled as:

  • Virtual: 4 sessions of 2.5 hours

  • Onsite: 10 hours spread over 2 days

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to the slides and exercise documents used within the sessions via the learning portal. This allows them to review material when required to refresh their knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance.
