This course supplies learners with the insights necessary for properly planning, and therefore successfully installing, a photovoltaic (PV) system per design specifications. It directs learners through the important steps of initial site inspection and evaluating appropriate locations for PV systems, and features unique elements of residential, small, industrial and utility-scale solar applications. The course probes key design concerns – including load, efficiency, and mechanical and electrical design – as well as aesthetics and tools for planning. Learners experiment with calculations needed to design a PV system, exercising newly gained knowledge about site selection, layout, code compliance, system components, and wire sizing.
This course is part of the Solar Energy for Engineers, Architects and Code Inspectors Specialization

TOP REVIEWS FROM SOLAR ENERGY AND ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DESIGN
GREAT CONTENT TALKING ABOUT THE TECHNICAL PART OF SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM DESIGNING AND DATA PROVIDED BY PROFESSOR WAS EXCELLENT FOR HAVING A PRACTICE OF DESIGNING THE SOLAR SYSTEM OF OUR OWN HOUSE.
If including some design videos like sunny web design or helioscope and aurora solar will gain some practical knowledge of designing.
Thank you gay for an exceptional course! It was very informative, practical and understandable. It will really help me in the future.
This is a very good course , I was able to know the Design of Solar home sizing,types of inverters and where applicable, designs calculations etc
