Among the most complex PV systems, multimode systems and microgrids have many applications and demand for them is growing fast. Whether powering a campus, providing backup for when the grid is down, or reducing peak demand, there are numerous benefits of PV systems with energy storage that can interact with the utility grid or act as their own grid. Lessons in PVOL303 include detailed design considerations for AC and DC coupled systems, as well as numerous examples for each, along with an in-depth presentation on designing a stand-alone microgrid. National Electrical Code (NEC®) requirements and best practices that pertain to these systems are addressed, including interconnection with the utility grid, along with maintenance and commissioning procedures and requirements.Courses include detailed system sizing calculations and exercises, and students will explore design considerations unique to grid-tied battery-based systems. In-depth design examples include both DC-coupled systems and AC-coupled systems. This Course is ideal for solar professionals planning to design and install grid-tied battery-based systems, and who have been working in the grid-direct market and need to learn more about battery-based systems in preparation for the NABCEP Solar PV Installer Certification Exam.Prerequisites: PV 101 or PVOL101 AND PV203 PREP or PVOL203 or PV203
