SEI hosting workshops and training at InterSolar 2020 North America

Between February 3-6, Solar Energy International (SEI) will be attending Intersolar North America 2020. Come and immerse yourself in our vibrant, in-depth technical training workshops, along with lively conference sessions to keep you up to speed on the latest trends and tech. On February 3, SEI will be conducting two paid workshops (see below), both of which have been approved for 4 NABCEP CE hours: 4 PVIP JTA. On February 4-5, during the conference, we will also offer two free show floor trainings, each one-hour long and approved for 1 NABCEP CE hour. Come see us at booth # 1541.

PV and Energy Storage: Configurations and Applications

When: Monday, February 3, 8am – 12pm

Where: Room 3

Approved NABCEP CE hours: 4 PVIP JTA

About: There is currently a tremendous amount of interest in photovoltaics and energy storage systems, and the growth in the energy storage sector is expected to continue for years to come. In this course, we will discuss common applications and varying topologies of battery-based PV systems. Topics include DC and AC coupled PV, residential storage systems for backup power and energy storage systems (ESS) designed for self-consumption, peak load shifting or demand management. Join SEI instructors with decades of experience to gain awareness of battery-based applications, equipment, and system design.

Advanced Battery-based System Design

When: Monday, February 3, 1pm – 5pm

Where: Room 3

Approved NABCEP CE hours: 4 PVIP JTA

About: The market demand for energy storage technologies presents new opportunities and varied applications,and battery-based system design is a complex task. This course will take a detailed look at system sizing and component selection, providing both DC and AC coupled design examples for residential battery-based applications. NEC® requirements, best-practice design considerations, and system maintenance strategies will be presented by SEI instructors who have extensive experience with battery-based PV systems. This course has been approved for 4 NABCEP CE hours: 4 PVIP JTA. Lunch will be included. Purchase of workshop required to attend.

Tools and Techniques for Commissioning and Maintenance of PV Systems

When: Tuesday, February 4, 11:15am – 12:15pm

Where: ISNA Innovation and Application Theater, 1200 Aisle of the Exhibit Hall

Approved NABCEP CE hours: 1

About: This presentation highlights the theory behind, and safe and practical use of, tools and equipment designed for operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of PV systems. We will cover PV system commissioning, performance evaluation, operations and maintenance, and troubleshooting techniques using tools such as I-V curve tracers, specialized PV commissioning tools, insulation resistance testers, and more.

Configuring of PV Systems and Energy Storage

When: Wednesday, February 5, 10:15am – 11:15am

Where: ISNA Innovation and Application Theater, 600 Aisle of the Exhibit Hall

Approved NABCEP CE hours: 1

About: The battery-based PV market is thriving as lower module prices make PV systems with energy storage the most cost effective, reliable power supply in more and more applications. There are a wide variety of battery-based and stand-alone PV system types, ranging from from small PV-direct, to stand-alone, to hybrid systems with multiple power sources, grid/PV multimode, and village micro-grids. The components, power flows, configuration, and common applications for each system type will be examined.
