GoodWe is a world leader in manufacturing PV inverters and energy storage solutions. We are dedicated to have an open platform for knowledge sharing & communication in terms of the PV industry. Our Solar Academy team focuses on sharing knowledge of PV applications, offering excellent PV system solutions, providing technical training to our customers across the globe with a range of topics covering different needs from PV installers, PV system designers, investors and distributors. We host and participate in training sessions in form of conferences, seminars, workshops and online webinars.
Keeping up with this vision GoodWe collaborated with Skill Council for Green Jobs to meet the skilling requirements of the end user. The course was aligned with ‘’Solar PV Designer’’ (QP: SGJ/Q 0110), a Qualification Pack (QP) of Skill Council for Green Jobs which has been declared a National Qualification and is part of the National Qualification Register. This training program was organised for 2 days on 16th & 17th September 2021 and had a total of seven major sessions, which focussed on important aspects of Solar PV (SPV) system design and the criteria employed for the components selection. This enabled the participants to receive an in-depth exposure on the design basis criteria for solar rooftop and ground mounted projects.
The training was largely targeted for solar industry professionals and candidates who would like to join the sector in roles related to system design and components selection & optimisation.
It was absolutely free of cost; however, the seats were limited and available on a first come first serve basis.
The learning objective of the training was:
- • Understand the system architecture of rooftop and ground mount solar projects
- • Interpret the technical standards in RTSPV or GMSPV
- • Optimize Balance of System components
- • Select the inverter after techno commercial assessment of Grid tied inverters
- • Analyse the impact of good quality inverter on generation and system reliability
- • Perform the matching of inverter with solar array considering Grid voltage, Array voltage (DC), derating factor, efficiency, Power factor, and other important electrical parameters
- • Select the customized and cost-effective Balance of System solution
- • Know-how of PV System and Helioscope and Generate the bankable report from PV System Software
- • Understand the O&M issues of PV plant and its components
