What We Teach
We look at the "nitty gritty" of what's required in the design process, from an assessment of loads all the way through to panel string configurations.
Key financial aspects and hidden costs
We go through the key financial points you need to address when planning a design prior to installation.
There are many financial factors that need to be considered when designing a successful commercial installation, from compliance and testing through
- Secondary protection
- Grid applications
- Structural engineering report
Understand the finer details involved in designing high performing systems.
The main module in this course covers all the key technical aspects of actually designing a successful commercial solar system. From AC / DC requirements, to string configurations and inverter options - you'll gain the knowledge required to deliver complete system designs.
- String configurations
- Parallel or not - pros and cons
- Inverter options
- AC side
- DC side
- Voltage rise
Cost benefit analysis
What's required to maximise system performance and efficiency through design.
Understanding how to maximise the performance of your system will ensure you achieve the best results possible for your client. We go over factors that have an impact on the effectiveness of systems and how they can impact cost.
- Panel orientation
- Flat roof vs tilt frames
- Output comparisons
Key tools and limitations
Get an understanding of the key tools that successful installers use when designing systems.
Making sure you have all the required data prior to designing your system will ensure your installation goes smoothly and is delivered on time and within budget.
- On-site checklist
- Financial component
- Inverter voltage windows
- Physical limitations
We help industry peers develop the skillset needed when designing high performing commercial systems.
"Enjoyed the day. Focused more on the smaller detail which kept things interesting."
"Attended because we had our first commercial job coming up. Enjoyed the course and the takeaway guide to use on site was extremely helpful!"
"Great course and professional speakers, found the AC side the most useful!"
