However, it is essential that electrical workers involved with these systems fully understand the operating theory and safety requirements in order to design safe and effective systems, as well as adequately manage customer expectations.
This is a recommended pre-requisite course for those wanting to design complete standalone (off-grid) systems and builds upon the basic design knowledge provided in Grid- Connected Photovoltaic Systems: Design Only.
The delivery of this course is designed for busy professionals who do not have the time to attend lengthy face-to-face courses. The online component is fully flexible to allow students to complete the theory in their own time. Estimated learning times below.
- Pre-course learning: Online self-directed learning at your own pace, withtutor support (100 hrs)
- Three day course at WITT’s Infrastructure Park, New Plymouth (24 hrs)
- Post-course assignment (16 hrs)
