TEC 5608 - Photovoltaic System Design and Construction (3)


When Offered: Fall, Spring
This course will introduce students to the basic concepts, tools, techniques and materials needed to design and construct systems that convert solar resources into electricity with photovoltaic (PV) technologies. Students will have the opportunity to learn how to assess the solar resources available at a particular site and how that information can be used to properly design PV systems. They will also have the opportunity to learn how to design and construct complete code compliant photovoltaic systems and become familiar with contemporary trends and products. The course will include classroom and “hands-on” design, construction and possibly some field trip experiences outside of class.
Lecture two hours, laboratory two hours. [Dual-listed with TEC 4608.]
