Description

Course objective (Applicability): DGS Solar Power Designers Commercial are able to design, supervise construction sites and commission commercial PV systems up to 1 MWp.

Outline: In the three training days the participants will have a close look at commercial size PV systems. The main focus lies on the technical skills: How to determine the size of a system, how to size the system, what components are common and recommended, existing laws and regulations and how to use software (PV Sol) to size commercial size systems. We will also have a look at typical obstacles that occur during project implementation: Organisation of a project and problem solving. 

Duration: 3 Days (24 Education units)

Prerequisites

Participation in the SuperSolarSchool or proof of sufficient pre-knowledge in the field of solar PV basics and grid-tied PV system design.

Target Audience

  • Technicians, engineers and architects with advanced knowledge on solar PV who want to improve their understanding and skills in the field of solar PV design.
  • PV business owners or planners who want to learn how to realise larger PV projects and what to consider

Graduate Slide3

I'm from SANRAL Technical Innovation. We are expanding on our road network so we have a few renewable energy sites and therefor we need the best design so myself and two of my colleagues attended the course. And it was really fun! We had workshops and hands-on experiments with the tools. Thank you very much! It was a really well presented course and I really enjoyed it!

Graduate Slide2

I did the Sunrise Intermediate course in 2014. We were a plumbing company and wanted to become a solar company. After 6 months we set up our own operation, paid school fees in the early years, went to China and ended up now using Victron. I am now the biggest seller for Victron equipment in Africa and the second biggest in the world. When I started, the course gave me an understanding in how to approach solar. A tip I give to all the people I get requests from is to take advantage of opportunities at the time!

Graduate Slide1

I highly recommend whoever is interested in solar energy, maybe as a consultant or as a technician or just a project manager. So for me the academy has done a great job, in fact it’s align to my future going forward in terms of business opportunities. Thank you very much!
