After participating in the course, you will be able to:
Apply basic principles of solar cell operation and comply with electrical authority and system operator
Perform AC and DC system losses, fault analysis at combiner boxes and assess solar farm site
Complete design layout and orientation, financial evaluations and operation of utility scale inverters
Transform to AC and connection medium voltage (MV) distribution system
Understand safe design (AC arc flash analysis, labeling and interlocking)
The last renewable energy resource to be developed in Canada, solar PV systems are unfamiliar to many engineers involved in power generation. The course deals with solar site assessment, installation consideration, financial evaluation of design, DC and AC losses, utility scale inverters, PV system commissioning and authorities technical requirements.
The course focuses on ground-mounted, grid-connected, medium and large utility scale solar farms connected to medium-voltage hydro circuits. Participants will also learn about overall solar farm configuration including DC and AC design and conceptual design of MV substation and AC collector circuits.
