The knowledge gap from designers to installers has long been a plague of solar projects. This course is for engineers & solar designers to get hands-on experience without an electrical license!

We will email you with a coupon code when the course launches, so keep an eye out!

The solar industry is booming, how are you capturing this growth and winning new work? This Sprint Course (less than 1hr), is ideal for solar designers , installers and business developers moving from residential to commercial scale projects. Coming June 2022

You will learn to:

  • Understand how to respond to and improve tenders for solar projects including:
    • Value Proposition
    • Establishing a Feedback Loop
    • Mapping Evaluation Criteria
    • Risk Tolerance
    • Alternative Offers
    • Major Components of a Tender
    • Tips and Tricks

Prerequisites & Delivery:

  • Basic knowledge of solar systems and solar economics.
  • Online self -paced Spring Course with a 1-year access duration.

It’s time to understand how solar data works! Decipher confusing IT terminology, equipment and its role in solar equipment in this 5 part short course. Coming June 2022

You will learn to:

  • Understand monitoring/communications requirements for PV systems
  • Understand common communications/monitoring protocols and technologies
  • Interpret network architecture diagrams
  • Applications in solar equipment
  • Troubleshoot common errors

Prerequisites & Delivery:

  • Basic knowledge of PV and PV-battery system components. No need for understanding of comms/monitoring equipment!
  • Online self -paced short course with a 1-year access duration.

Protection coordination is the calculation of protection settings of relays and circuit breakers in a network. This ensures the sensing and clearing of a fault by disconnecting only the faulty element, thus safe-guarding the healthy part of the system.

You will learn:

  • The different types of circuit breakers, trip unit settings and significance
  • Basic concepts of – time and current grading, selectivity, discrimination, cascading, zone selective interlocking etc.
  • IEEE recommended practices for coordination
  • AS 3000 and AS 4777 recommended practices for protection device settings for PV installations
  • Demonstration of how ETAP and PowerCAD can be used for protection coordination of PV & battery installations.

 Prerequisites & Delivery:

  • Need access to Standards – AS/NZS 3000, IEEE recommended practices, Prior solar design knowledge
  • Online self -paced short course with a 1-year access duration.

An arc flash blast from switchboards and can cause severe burn injuries to personnel. Arc flash analysis ensures safe operation and maintenance of electrical equipment. These studies also allow the designer to recommend the safety controls and personal protective equipment whilst working on switchboards.

You will learn to:

  • Understand basics of what an arc flash is and how it is formed
  • Understand the IEEE 1584-2018 edition to calculate arc flash current and incident energy
  • Understanding the NFPA 70E for selecting the correct arc rated PPE
  • Using ETAP for AC Arc flash analysis

 Prerequisites & Delivery:

  • Need access to various standards & prior solar design knowledge.
  • Online self -paced short course with a 1-year access duration.

Lightning protection requirements for rooftop PV are not well understood, as the standards are often unclear and open to interpretation. Rooftop PV often involves retrofitting a PV system to a structure that may or may not have an existing lightning protection system.

You will learn to:

  • Assess mandatory requirements for standard AS/NZS 5033 Appendix F and more
  • Recommended requirements for protection of system components, based on OEM and AS 1768
  • Calculate separation distance to maintain “separation” between a PV system and an existing LPS
  • Approximate costs for various degrees of protection
  • How to work out if the site needs LPS
  • What to do if a site has an existing LPS

 Prerequisites & Delivery:

  • Need access to AS/NZS 5033, AS 1768 & prior solar design knowledge.
  • Online self -paced short course with a 1-year access duration.
