Start your career in solar energy. Acquire foundational knowledge of photovoltaic technology.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Recognize the elements of a well-designed PV system
Describe types of PV systems
Analyze PV system and project requirements
Identify national, state, and local requirements for solar PV systems
This specialization provides an overview of solar photovoltaics (PV), intricacies of solar system design, and a framework for solar PV project management. Targeted for engineers, HVAC installers, architects and building code inspectors, it is also appropriate for anyone considering a career in the growing renewable energy field of solar power. Courses introduce how PV operates and the anatomy of solar electric systems, the economics of solar power, pros and cons of different systems, considerations for designing a PV system, and fundamental code compliance. Materials primarily focus on solar PV in the United States.
Applied Learning Project
Students will apply theory to projects embedded at the end of each course. They include System Analysis (course 1), System Design (course 2), and System Compliance (course 3). Projects assist students with understanding solar PV system layouts and costs, calculating PV system size, and identifying appropriate system design and labeling requirements.
