(Covers Rooftop and MW Scale Solar PV Systems) 

Enrol now! 

Overview of the Course:

Low performance and poor operational condition is one of the biggest issues of solar PV power projects worldwide.  A Large number of PV systems are under performing due to poor site selection, system design faults, frequent equipment failure, low solar irradiation access, unplanned grid failure or equipment mismatching. Some of these issues are external and often not in the hands of the system designer but most of them are because of poor design practices, inadequate installation planning or incomplete understanding.

GSES India conducts 45 hours online interactive Technical Advatange training on “Grid Connected PV Systems: Design and Installation” to provide industry professionals, PV engineers and individuals wishing to further their career in the solar industry, hands-on training on step-by-step design and installation procedure of rooftop and large PV systems in accordance with international best practices.

Who should attend?

Solar Industry professionals, PV engineers, system designers or anyone else involved with designing/ implementing grid connected PV systems.
