Apply the National Electrical Code (NEC) to battery-based systems in this online 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)
If you are just looking for enough Battery Based system information to prep for the NABCEP exams or SEI's PV301L Battery Based Lab, but will not be working extensively with Battery Based systems, you may be interested in our shorter, 18 hour, instructorless, on-demand PV203 PREP - Battery Based Systems Fundamentals Online Course.
