Outline: The DGS Solar Power Designer PV Farm course is for participants who have an engineering background. The focus of this advanced course is on the design and installation of PV farms. The functionality and components of PV farms will be introduced and case studies will be presented including the step-by-step calculation from site visit to quotation. The course will be conclude with a site visit to the 75 MW Letsatsi Solar PV Power Plant. The course will be presented by two German DGS trainers with vast experience in PV farm planning, installation and operation.
Main topics: PV basics recap , PV farm components, PV farm planning (sun path, access planning, row distances, surveying, geological survey, yield prognoses, string concepts, earthing concepts, lightning protection), PV farm design (strings, combiner boxes, inverters, fuses, cable design), construction of PV farms (surveying, access, compound area, health & safety matters, construction technologies), commissioning and operation, fault finding and quality assurance
