This course will provide an overview of the three basic PV system applications, primarily focusing on grid-direct systems. The goal of the course is to create a fundamental understanding of the core concepts necessary to work with all PV systems, including: system components, site analysis, PV module criteria, mounting solutions, safety, and commissioning. The course will also cover the basics of sizing a residential grid-direct system, wire sizing, overcurrent protection, and grounding – all of which will be expanded upon in PV202.
Prerequisites: Before participating in the PV101 in-person workshop, students are required to complete the self-paced PV 101 PREP online component (included in price of PV101, you will automatically be enrolled in PV PREP Online at the time you register for PV101).
Students who complete the PV 101 PREP will be able to perform the following:
• Differentiate between various renewable energy sources and types of systems
• Perform power and energy calculations
• Perform a load analysis for a grid-direct system and evaluate utility bills and rate plans
• Implement electrical efficiency measures to reduce system size
