The Virtual Photovoltaic Laboratory program will enrich your mastery of photovoltaic engineering through practical experience. You will gain this practical experience in a virtual lab environment in which you will conduct experiments with light, solar cells, modules, batteries, power electronic components, and system design. You will test the impact of various realistic situations and configurations on the performance of PV systems and all their components. You will also practice how to set up measurements, the principles of which are used on a large scale in a professional setting.
If you normally just see and analyze the above through a mathematical representation as an output of a model, or know theoretically how they perform - in this program you will actively manipulate them in a virtual live setting and challenge yourself by arranging the measurement setup.
Is this program for you?
This program will support PV professionals who wish to enrich their understanding of photovoltaics and related best practices through practical work. It also suits engineers new to the industry who seek a more "hands on" experience with solar equipment, thus gaining a more pragmatic understanding of their work.
