As the solar PV industry grows and existing systems continue to age, the operations and maintenance (O&M) of PV systems has become a field unto itself. This course is for the field technician who will perform O&M duties, and for those in operations or asset management who want to know the nitty gritty details of keeping a PV system operating at peak performance. You will become familiar with a range of O&M tasks, including inspections and preventive maintenance, performance analysis, and troubleshooting. We will discuss advanced analytical tools, meters, and techniques such as insulation resistance testers, I-V curve tracers, and infrared cameras. The course covers all sizes of grid-direct PV systems including residential, commercial, and large-scale systems, but will not cover battery maintenance or medium voltage-specific O&M tasks.
