4 Days Technical Advantage Course on Solar PV Best Practices



Do you want to know how to:

  • Undertake a solar resource analysis and predict monthly system output?
  • Use the solar pathfinder for a complete shadow analysis?
  • Undertake site planning to optimize cost and ensure the long life of  PV system?
  • Match solar array and inverter for optimum system output?
  • Size cables and safety components for best performance of the PV system?
  • Optimize array layout and component locations to maximise yield?
  • Comply with system earthing and lightening protection requirements?
  • Implement safe systems keeping in mind OH&S and fire issues?


  • Does your PV system produce less power than committed?
  • Does you inverter trip often?
  • Do you face blown-out fuses regularly or have overheating DC cables?
  • Do you know why performance of one PV system differs from another for the same solar radiation?
  • How much electricity do you really save when you install a PV system?

Most system failures are not because of hardware issues. Even the most evident hardware problems may be caused by design flaws, such as over-sizing or under-sizing of equipment, lack of technical understanding or lack of data. 

"Even the best hardware will not perform well if it is poorly installed, designed or maintained"

Attend the GSES India Solar PV best practices training program and learn best practices in design and installation of solar PV systems, as well as how to follow Indian and international standards to implement safe and reliable PV systems.

Training Methodology:

The course will be delivered in lecture format using PowerPoint, sharing of case examples, design exercises, energy yield estimation exercise and visit to a functional solar power plant.

Training Materials:

  • A copy of GSES ‘Grid Connected PV Systems Design and Installation’ training manual
  • Copies of power point presentations, design tasks, GSES design & energy yield simulation tool etc.
  • Equipment, accessories and tools for demonstration


GSES develop and deliver solar PV training courses in accordance with international competency standards and accreditation requirements.  On successful completion of the course students receive a certificate of completion.
