Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (‘GSES’) – a leading Australian firm engaged in providing training and resources for solar PV- held its first workshop in Delhi in the first week of March. The four day workshop was focused on technical and operational aspects of solar PV projects with a guided site visit to a solar plant to give participants an informative tour of a typical PV installation.
- Participants included project developers and EPC companies
- The workshop covered a wide range of topics including grid connected PV systems, system optimization, quality control and performance indicators
- Participants were trained to use PVsyst using solar radiation data
The workshop, attracted a varying range of participants from solar project developers and EPC companies. The diversity of attendees generated a healthy debate while allowing individuals to share their practical insights on the solar PV space in India.
The panels of instructors comprised of leading industry experts, including Mr. Dwipen Boruah, a renewable energy professional with over 20 years of experience in solar PV, solar thermal, micro hydro, wind-solar hybrid systems and biomass. The workshop covered a range of topics including various design and engineering aspects of grid connected PV systems, system optimization, quality control and performance indicators. Various factors affecting the performance of solar PV projects were looked at – with participants drawing on their experiences. Participants were also trained to use PVsyst using solar radiation data from different sources.
Topics covered also included areas such as mounting systems, balance of system equipment, and storage solutions. The workshop concluded with a solar plant visit to provide hands on experience of topics covered in the workshop.
The next solar PV workshop is scheduled to commence on the 22nd of April. As GSES says ‘Don’t be a fossil fool. Go solar today!’
