This course is designed for individuals with a basic understanding of a PV system, providing more detailed information, calculations, and insights on designing solar power systems for small structures, including components like surge protectors, battery capacities, DC appliances, sample solar system schematics, and emerging technologies, building upon the knowledge gained from the introductory courses, Solar Power Part I and Part II.
It is important to understand that, before taking this continuing education course, you must have a simple apprehension of a photovoltaic system(PV). This course offers a brief overview and calls attention to the components and process of creating a solar power system for compact structures. However, it does not cover the more elementary details provided in the introductory course (Solar Power Part I: Design for Small Structures – An Introduction). In this course, you will find more in-depth information and calculations for expanding beyond a rudimentary system. Additionally, it includes new information on surge protectors, battery capacities and selection, DC appliances, sample solar system schematics, and more progressive technological innovations. It is designed to expand upon the material covered in the Solar Power Part I and Solar Power Part II courses.
