The content of the course is brought to you in individual video lectures of several minutes long. The instructor shares the relevant knowledge with you, aided by supportive visual material.
Once you complete the course, you will receive a personal [downloadable] certificate of completion for this course.
Throughout the course you have the option to test your comprehension of the shared knowledge through short multiple choice question. And yes, you can skip any or all of them if you wish :)
Through this module we will learn about the different options you have between the types of solar panels, generators and alternators.
The different battery chemistries and the advantages they bring for your system. Charge controllers options and the fundamentals of electricity explained in a simple way.
The different types of battery inverters, chargers and hybrid inverters: How they work and their advantages. Wire sizing, solar fuses and breakers, including the theory & product examples.
-- COMING SOON! -- In-depth system design & calculations: Battery banks capacity and configuration, Solar array size and orientation, Inverters, Controllers, Wiring, Fuses & Breakers.
-- COMING SOON! -- The different product options for your systems: Technical & Financial product reviews, suitability vs. your system performance requirements.
“The lecturer is incredibly easy to listen to and he backs up everything he talks about with effective imagery to help understand the systems. Very well done and I’m learning a lot about how solar systems actually work from the individual cell to the entire panel arrays.”
“Gained a goof amount of knowledge , as I live in South Africa , and at the moment load shedding of the national grid is continuously being implemented, I am considering exploring solar possibilities to get totally of the grid. Thanks very much for sharing the information.”
“Brilliant Course! The Instructor is very entertaining, informative and engaging. The material is well thought out, current and easy to understand. Thank you great value and I would highly recommend this course.”
