edX: Solar Energy: Photovoltaic (PV) Systems

 with  Olindo Isabella and Ravi Vasudevan

In this course you will learn how to turn solar cells into full modules; and how to apply full modules to full photovoltaic systems.

The course will cover design of photovoltaic systems, such as utility scale solar farms or residential scale systems (on/off the grid). You will learn about the function and operation of various components including inverters, batteries, DC-DC converters and the grid. After learning about the components, you will gain an understanding of the main design decisions to be taken when planning a real PV installation with excellent performance and reliability.

Finally, you will practice modelling the performance of a PV system for different solar energy applications, and estimating the energy production of a client's potential system.

This course is part of the Solar Energy Engineering MicroMasters Program designed to cover all physics and engineering aspects of photovoltaics: photovoltaic energy conversion, technologies and systems.
