¿Do you want to expand your knowledge in the renewable energy industry? With this program endorsed by Solar Energy International (SEI) and listed on Emagister, you will!

It all starts with the fundamentals, and a solid understanding of various components, system architectures, and applications for PV systems. Other topics include site analysis, system sizing, array configuration, and performance estimation; electrical design characteristics such as wiring, overcurrent protection, and grounding; a detailed look at module and inverter specifications and characteristics; mounting methods for various roof structures and ground-mounts; and an introduction to safely and effectively commissioning grid-direct PV systems. This course focuses on grid-direct PV systems but covers material critical to understanding all types of PV systems. These core concepts are expanded on in SEI’s upper ­level PV courses.
