CE519: Off-grid System Considerations

NABCEP CE Hours:  2 hours (click for details). There are many things to consider when sizing and designing an off-grid PV system. In this course, we’ll provide a high-level overview, which will primarily focus on DC coupled off-grid systems. We’ll discuss the different components in an off-grid system, and look at different design parameters used when sizing an off-grid system. There will be sizing examples for each electrical component, using the design parameters for that component. We’ll wrap things up with an overview of the maintenance required to keep an off-grid system running properly.  Further NABCEP hours information found under Certification section below.
