In this 4-hour course, we'll take an in-depth look at photovoltaic, or solar collection systems. We'll start by reviewing the configuration that these systems follow, the batteries that can be used in such a system, and the charge controller which orchestrates the interaction between the major components of the photovoltaic (PV) system.
We'll also discuss how to integrate the PV system with an appropriate overcurrent protection device, disconnects, and grounding. We'll end the course with a look at large-scale PV systems, and the outlook for the photovoltaic industry.
