Apply the National Electrical Code (NEC) to battery-based systems in this in-person solar training course to ensure safe, code-compliant design and installation. 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.
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)
This PV203 in-person course includes an online component, PV203 PREP that must be completed prior to coming to the in-person PV203: PV203 PREP:Students receive access information shortly after registration for PV203. PV203 PREP - Battery Based Systems Fundamentals enhances students’ learning experience and allows time to cover more information in the in-person PV203 course.
