COURSE CONTENT
  • Review of electrical fundamentals including:
    – Voltage, current and how they are measured, AC and DC, Resistance
    – Inductance and Capacitance in AC and DC circuits
    – Impact and calculation of Voltage drops
    – Use of multi-meters, current clamps and shunts including practical exercise
  • DC-based Renewable Systems (off-grid):
    – Systems architecture and batteries
    – Calculation of cable size and measurement of voltage drop
    – Over current protection and over voltage protection
    – Safe operation and installation
    – Practical session measurement of PV performance
    – Earthing and over current protection
  • Grid-connected systems:
    – Different types of generators inverters (asynchronous and synchronous types)
    – Safety considerations
    – The impact of power factor
    – PV installation guidelines and installation standards
    – Connection and Wiring standards
  • AC safety:
    – Earthing arrangements and their implications
    – Safe operation and installation

I gained a broader knowledge of PV system design and particular safety and MCS standard detail. I will be training field staff in PV system assessment primarily in sub-Saharan Africa”
