This course will build upon the core concepts from PV101, with a specific emphasis on battery-based system design. Students will work through step-by-step design process for battery-based applications, including stand-alone (off-grid), grid-tied with battery back-up, and hybrid systems. Topics such as load analysis, component selection, battery safety, voltage drop, and commissioning procedures will be presented.
In addition to sizing exercises and calculations, students will explore additional design considerations unique to battery-based systems. The in-person workshop is 5 days of classroom lecture with tours, and can be followed by PV301L Solar Electric Lab Week (Battery-Based) for hands-on installation experience.
The online course is six weeks long and covers all of the material presented in the in-person workshop.
This course is ideal for people looking to design and install battery-based systems, and for solar professionals who have been working in the grid-direct market and need to learn about battery-based systems in preparation for the NABCEP Solar PV Installer Certification Exam.
Prerequisites: PV101 (or PV D&I or Grid-Tied PV prior to January 2010)
Course materials include a copy of the 2008 National Electric Code book, which will be mailed to you before the start of the course.
