Basics of Photovoltaic (PV) Systems for Grid-Tied Applications
Our objective in this course is to provide the basic vocabulary, technical, and economic details necessary to understand and evaluate grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) projects from a project manager’s and/or owner’s perspective. In this introductory course, Pete Shoemaker, Renewables Program Coordinator for the Pacific Energy Center, will provide an overview of the fundamentals of solar electric systems, technically known as photovoltaics. He will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various PV technologies (monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin-film), including module efficiencies and their implications on the space requirements of a project.
