This seminar will serve as an introduction to the basics of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology with a specific focus on small, off-grid systems similar to those that LUTW designs and installs in remote communities. The seminar will cover: 1) Solar PV technology, 2) Electricity basics, 3) Off-grid solar PV system components and 4) Off-grid solar PV system design and sizing basics. At the end of the seminar participants will:
- Be able to provide a basic explanation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems
- Be aware of major components required for off-grid solar PV systems and their purpose
- Have a basic understanding of what’s involved in sizing off-grid solar PV systems
