PVOL303: Solar Training - Advanced Battery-based PV System Design: Series I - Online

PVOL303 provides advanced design training for battery-based PV systems, with a focus on grid-connected and micro-grid systems. Students work through step-by-step design processes for grid-tied battery-based systems with a wide range of equipment specifications; learn best practices for reliable and safe system design and installation; and apply 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements to battery-based PV systems.

what you will learn

Courses include detailed system sizing calculations and exercises, and students will explore design considerations unique to grid-tied battery-based systems. In-depth design examples include both DC-coupled systems and AC-coupled systems. This Course is ideal for solar professionals planning to design and install grid-tied battery-based systems, and who have been working in the grid-direct market and need to learn more about battery-based systems in preparation for the NABCEP Solar PV Installer Certification Exam.
