Course Description: Photovoltaic (PV) devices convert sunlight directly to electricity with low levels of greenhouse gas emissions per kWh of electricity produced. This course covers factors important to the operation, design and construction of solar cells and PV system design. Students learn principle of operation of solar cells, loss mechanisms and design features to improve efficiency of solar cells and modules. In addition, students are introduced to application and design of PV systems. System design is focused on stand-alone PV systems but other specific applications such as Remote Area Power Supply systems and Grid-Connected PV systems are also discussed. Importantly, simulation and laboratory exercises are used to reinforce an understanding of modelling and characterisation of solar cells and PV modules.
