Solar Energy Training Course

Photovoltaic (Solar Electric) _ July 2020

Solar Energy Training Courses / Solar Energy Education

The 5-days seminar offers an in-depth insight into " Photovoltaic (Solar Electric)"  and provides with lectures on the design and functioning of Grid-connected and off-grid Photovoltaics, solar cells and inverters, planning of photovoltaic systems, and location and shading of panels, as well as the Storage Types and characteristics. Storage Technology is one of most important aspects for the development of renewable energy especially in the developing countries. During the practical part of the seminar participants learn how to install a photovoltaic system. Finally, Participants will have the opportunity to visit a PV- solar plant and take part in a sightseeing tour through Berlin.
