The course consists of a study of both Photovoltaics (PV) and Solar-thermal technologies for generating electricity from sunlight. The principles, manufacturing technologies, efficiencies, advantages and limitations of various PV cells will be considered. The students should be able to design a manufacturing plant as well as practical installations of various PV components in a cost effective way.
The different solar-thermal systems will be introduced with the basic heat transfer and thermodynamics principles that apply. Both bulk electricity generation and smaller stand alone systems will be covered.
Online registration links for this short course will be active from mid February.
