Lee Layton, PE
This 4-hour course is an in-depth look at solar inverters. Solar inverters are the “brains” of a photovoltaic power system. The inverter converts the solar DC power to utility grade AC power and has mechanisms to adjust the power output to yield the maximum power from the solar collectors. The course explains how inverters work, the different design types and operating characteristics and explains how to read and interpret a manufacturer’s solar inverter datasheet.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
