Photovoltaics

7.5 Credits
Second Cycle

Starts week 36, 2019

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • analyse and discuss the physical processes that determine the output of different types of solar cells, as well as relate this to the mathematical models that can be used to calculate this output
  • explain the mechanism of current and voltage generation in illuminated semiconductors
  • describe how solar cells are connected into a module, what the losses are and how these can be minimized
  • describe the role, operating principle and performance of the main components of a PV system
  • demonstrate understanding of the most common types of electronic power conversion circuits in PV system components
  • independently design simple stand-alone, as well as grid-connected, solar electricity systems and choose components for optimal system performance
