This is intermediate class for anyone interested in understanding the specific issues associated with PV & ESS site analysis and system sizing. It focuses on design, installation and support. The PEC’s Basics of PV for Grid-Tied Applications class is a prerequisite for this class and should provide students with the above information. Also, this is not a hands-on installation class or a PV design/engineering class. Our objective in this course is to assist participants in evaluating the technical feasibility of a potential PV project planning by presenting design, implementation and support issues that affect site selection and PV installation, while providing participants with simple tools for preliminary system size estimations. This is a two-part class. In the first class, site analysis topics will include estimation of the available solar resource, system orientation, module tilt angles, planning for shade, and evaluating space requirements. We will introduce fundamental tools to participants to complete a solar site analysis using both hardware and software methods. In the second day, we’ll go through hands-on demonstrations and project examples and understand the primary factors and key consideration for evaluating the system output and feasibility of PV and ESS. The topics will include sizing for both photovoltaic and energy storage systems. NABCEP Continuing Education Credits are available.
