PV Module Performance Measurements and Energy Rating

Specialism: Specialist

Skill Level: Intermediate Level

Delivery Method: e-Learning

Duration: 0.75 days

Course Status: Available

Price: Free

Course description

The aim of this course is to Introduce the audience to PV module metrology for power and energy rating, describe the necessary components, equipment and procedures for measurements of PV modules according to the standards and act like a good practice guide for PV metrologists and laboratories.

 

This course also intends to train PV metrologists in the use of PV energy rating and establish a good practice guide for energy rating measurements of PV modules and uncertainty calculations. Metrologists will also be introduced into guidelines in measuring non-conventional PV modules, such as bifacial technology products.

Who is it for?

The course is aimed at metrologists, researchers and students working in instrument development, PV module production, industrial R&D, research institutes and universities.
