During the Solar Fundamentals 1B online training, students will learn the theory behind energy storage, including identifying how much energy is lost when charging and discharging batteries. At the conclusion of this course, students will have gained the necessary skills to design a simple residential-sized battery-based solar PV system using solar PV modules, charge controller(s), batteries, inverter(s), and balance of system components (BOS).
