This course supplies learners with the insights necessary for properly planning, and therefore successfully installing, a photovoltaic (PV) system per design specifications. It directs learners through the important steps of initial site inspection and evaluating appropriate locations for PV systems, and features unique elements of residential, small, industrial and utility-scale solar applications. The course probes key design concerns – including load, efficiency, and mechanical and electrical design – as well as aesthetics and tools for planning. Learners experiment with calculations needed to design a PV system, exercising newly gained knowledge about site selection, layout, code compliance, system components, and wire sizing.

Principais avaliações do SOLAR ENERGY AND ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DESIGN
After finish this course, I realize my final project about renewable energy using solar panel was nothing compared with the knowledge I obtain from this course
Its a good materials and simplify for no electrical engineer.. I'm a structural engineer background and got easy and clear Al critical point for electrical system design point and checks
It's good for basic calculations and quite comprehensive in the system design. The only thing that isn't comprehensive enough is the lecture explanations.
It's very good platform to easy to learn and clear all doubt, and also than full to this Coursera app to help me. Thank you......
Sobre Programa de cursos integrados Solar Energy for Engineers, Architects and Code Inspectors
This specialization provides an overview of solar photovoltaics (PV), intricacies of solar system design, and a framework for solar PV project management. Targeted for engineers, HVAC installers, architects and building code inspectors, it is also appropriate for anyone considering a career in the growing renewable energy field of solar power. Courses introduce how PV operates and the anatomy of solar electric systems, the economics of solar power, pros and cons of different systems, considerations for designing a PV system, and fundamental code compliance. Materials primarily focus on solar PV in the United States. To learn more, view an overview at https://youtu.be/XjkKzbXqA6s.
