Course description

QQI Level 6 Micro Solar Photovoltaic Systems Implementation (6N0306)

This is a 4 day, 9am-5pm, programme. The course will involve theory and practical work. On completion you will be able to:

  • Describe the main p-v cell technologies including the characteristics, configurations, and components of solar p-v systems
  • Describe factors affecting solar p-v output to include tilt, orientation, over shading and p-v module mismatch
  • Describe the relationship between rated output at standard test conditions and actual output in use
  • Summarise the planning requirements for solar p-v installations including any possible exemptions
  • Summarise relevant legislation, standards and regulation to include CE marking and New Approach 2 directives, product testing and certification standards and building regulations
  • Describe maintenance requirements for solar p-v systems to include cleaning, checking torque of fixing bolts and visual inspection of array integrity and electrical connections
  • Propose an appropriate mounting technique based on aerodynamic and static load considerations
  • Describe the potential hazards and mitigating action associated with solar p-v operation to include electrical hazards, “always live” systems, labeling and signage requirements and fixing of panels
  • Describe the relevant health and safety requirements for installation to include working at height, securing ladders, safety requirements for scaffolds, guard rails and personal safety equipment
  • Describe the recommended installation sequence for solar p-v systems identifying relevant standards and guidelines applicable to each phase of installation
  • Outline the main considerations for roof-mounted solar p-v systems including roof types, construction, loading, integrity and weather proofing
  • Assess roof loading and load bearing capacity and recommend suitable mounting and weather sealing techniques
  • Use the recommended tools for deploying all required solar p-v system components in accordance with manufacturer’s specification
  • Carry out a feasibility study for solar p-v system to include a resource assessment and economic evaluation
  • Generate a design layout for a solar p-v system to include a specification of array location, mounting techniques, cable runs and inverter location
  • Assess the conformance of a solar p-v system in accordance with standards for module fixings, fixing of the array, weather proofing, and integrity of the array
  • Test a solar p-v installation to include normal shutdown, emergency shutdown, and power control against solar intensity
