GoodWe Collaborates with Skill Council For Green Jobs To Impart Solar Training

GoodWe, the global PV inverters and energy storage solution firm got its Solar Academy team that focuses on sharing knowledge of PV applications, to collaborate with the Skill Council for Green Jobs to support the skilling requirements in the PV sector. Titled “Advanced SPV System Design optimization& Criteria for Component Selection”, the course was aligned with ‘’Solar PV Designer’’ (QP: SGJ/Q 0110), a Qualification Pack (QP) of Skill Council for Green Jobs which has been declared a National Qualification and is part of the National Qualification Register. The training program, organised for 2 days on 16th & 17th September had a total of seven major sessions, which focused on important aspects of Solar PV (SPV) system design and the criteria employed for the components selection. This enabled the participants to receive an in-depth exposure on the design basis criteria for solar rooftop and ground mounted projects.

The training was largely targeted for solar industry professionals and candidates who would like to join the sector in roles related to system design and components selection and optimisation.

Run at zero cost for participants, seats were on first cum first served basis.

The learning objective of the training were:

  • Understand the system architecture of rooftop and ground mount solar projects
  • Interpret the technical standards in RTSPV or GMSPV
  • Optimize Balance of System components
  • Select the inverter after techno commercial assessment of Grid tied inverters
  • Analyses the impact of good quality inverter on generation and system reliability
  • Perform the matching of inverter with solar array considering Grid voltage, Array voltage (DC), derating factor, efficiency, Power factor, and other important electrical parameters
  • Select the customized and cost-effective Balance of System solution
  • Know-how of PV System and Helioscope and Generate the bankable report from PV
    System Software
  • Understand the O&M issues of PV plant and its components

A Total of 48 Participants joined the training. Senior experienced experts who were trainers for the event included:
