Solar Energy International (SEI) launched their first solar training class in the United Arab Emirates on February 19th! Students from Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UAE came to the RAK Research and Innovation Center for this week long technical solar training led by SEI Instructor, Kristopher Sutton. SEI is grateful to the American University of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Research & Innovation Center where the class is taking place for their cooperation in facilitating this class. RAK is a great location for SEI students to have first hand experience with a wide range of PV systems as they begin their solar education.
The class, PV101, is your gateway to a career in the solar industry. It all starts with the fundamentals, and a solid understanding of various components, system architectures, and applications for PV systems. Other topics include site analysis, system sizing, array configuration, and performance estimation; electrical design characteristics such as wiring, overcurrent protection, and grounding; a detailed look at module and inverter specifications and characteristics; mounting methods for various roof structures and groundmounts; and an introduction to safely and effectively commissioning grid-direct PV systems. This course focuses on grid-direct PV systems, the largest and fastest growing segment of the PV industry, but covers material critical to understanding all types of PV systems. These core concepts are expanded on in SEI’s upper level PV courses, which focus more specifically on particular system types, applications and design methodologies.
