This advanced course provides an in-depth look into the design process and considerations for grid-connected megawatt-scale PV systems, with an emphasis on ground-mounted systems. The course will discuss the design process from pre-project planning to best practices in equipment selection, installation, quality control, and design strategies specific to large-scale PV systems. The course will use a project case study to highlight design considerations and choices for a ground-mounted single-axis tracker system. This course will be taught by instructors with real project experience in developing, designing, installing, and commissioning megawatt-scale PV systems, so come take advantage!
Topics include: -Pre-project planning and site analysis, system design and optimization, layout and racking choices, inverter and transformer selection, and introduction to medium voltage equipment and AC utility interconnection -Installation considerations for optimal long-term performance -2023 NEC requirements and large-scale PV -Project case study (trackers, string inverters, interconnection configurations, auxiliary power, and more)
