Design and optimisation of On-grid solar PV plants up to 2MWp.

Learn how to optimise your commercial solar plant designs for the highest possible yield and lowest LCOE (Levelized cost of energy).
on-grid solar PV systems

What you’ll learn

  • Update on the latest market and technology developments.

  • Recap of key technical and financial concepts.

  • Design-focused training for on-grid solar PV systems in the 100kWp to 2,000kWp range.

  • Learn about technical design aspects such as space optimization, dealing with shading, PV string design principles and more…

  • Hands-on exercises with interactive feedback sessions to clarify design principles.

  • Learn how to optimize a solar PV system from a financial point of view. For example, does it make financial sense to increase the PV inverter loading ratio (PDC:PAC) at cost of a lower solar yield?

  • Best practices of various aspects of a complete 2 MWp solar system design.
