ESET 441

This course takes an in-depth look at photovoltaic power generation.  Students design grid connected systems using string inverters and micro inverters. Off-grid battery based systems for housing and other applications such as lighting and signs are studied in detail. Issues of racking, electrical design, battery selection and sizing are examined. Students learn to select photovoltaic equipment based on customer requirements, electrical code and site issues.   Labs involve hands-on equipment use and installation.
