      Description

      The Solar Power Designer for PV battery systems is an advanced course on solar storage technology. In the course we ahev a detailed look at battery technology, both lithium and lead, in order to understand better how to select, size and operate storage systems. The second focus lies on the sizing of the storage system: what are determining facors? Which technology is best for which application? How to do a cost calculation?

      It is a theoretical course for PV designer, nevertheless many calculation exercises, interactive elements and use of showcase materials are included to make the training easy to follow and at the same time very effective.

      Target Audience

      The target audience are installers, technicians and engineers who already have experience with solar photovoltaic systems and can tick any of the following boxes:

      • want to learn more about battery technology
      • have experienced problems with battery operation or sizing
      • are not sure how to select the right battery technology and size for storage systems
      • want to be able to choose between lead and lithium technology according application

      Main Topics

      1. Battery technology and function (lithium and lead technology)
      2. Plan the design of battery storage systems for off-grid and grid-connected photovoltaic systems
      3. Design battery storage systems for off-grid and grid-connected photovoltaic systems
      4. Document the design of battery storage

      Prerequisites

      Basic knowledge on solar PV, gained e.g. in our SuperSolarSchool. Pre-knowledge in the field of battery technology is welcome.

      What participants say about our trainings

      OUR GRADUATES

      Ryan Coetsee, Slider 5

      I am interested in the renewable energy, and specifically solar. I joined the SuperSolarSchool as it ticked all the boxes for me. It had a very big impact on me, it is a big building block as I am trying to get into the renewable industry. I would recommend the training to anyone that is interested in solar and renewable energy. It's been a fantastic course!

      Kudakwashe Mlambo, Slider 4

      From my point of view, solar energy is taking over and with the energy crisis in South Africa with all the load shedding going on, I got motivated to learn more about solar system installation. Being the youngest person among all the participants pushed me and gave me more motivation to work harder. All the participants where great and gave me lots of advice. I would recommend electricians and people looking to venture into the solar industry and open businesses.

      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!

      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!

      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!
