Advanced Certificate in MW Solar Project

Amid myriad policy and project execution issues, India's utility-scale solar park model has firmly stood its ground. India is now home to several ‘ultra-mega solar parks’ with capacities of more than 1GW. In 2015 the target was raised to 100 GW of solar capacity (including 60 GW from Utility solar) by 2022. Large Scale PV solar power plants need Technical knowledge as well as a strong aspect of financial analysis and modelling.

Today, anyone can set-up a solar power plant with a capacity of 1KW to 1MW on your land or rooftop spaces. Install solar power in megawatt scale, generate electricity and sell to utility or for captive consumption.

Successful deployment of solar PV generation must include thoughtful design that considers the immediate challenges of rapid and repeated implementation while selecting from a vast range of suppliers and ensuring the greatest efficiency, operability and value for the long term.

This course will enable the participants to effectively work on design, establishment and management of solar utility scale power projects. The successful candidates shall have vast opportunities in getting wider knowledge in the areas of concept development & feasibility study, site identification, feasibility study, detailed system design, engineering, construction & commercial operation, operational performance monitoring of solar MW power projects, financial aspects of the solar power plant like DPR,DSCR,ROI,CUF estimation and CAPEX ,OPEX modelling. This course will be of great interest for business owners/New entrepreneur who are interested to business in solar power.


Live Interactive Classes::

IST Live Interactive Class, where students and teachers meet together at schedule class time with whiteboard, voice and live video, Lectures and Question answer occur at the same hour.

Our expert faculty members take session on each paper that is delivered through live sessions. These sessions are joined by students from India and Abroad. Trainers will discuss in each class session about Key concepts, whiteboard calculation, design, costing, documentation, case studies and real life examples. Students also get chance to clarify their doubts / academic clarifications. If by any chance you miss these live classes, don't worry, each class recorded sessions are uploaded in the IST E-Library/LMS.

Hands-on Practical

We know that only theoretical knowledge by online or virtual classes are not sufficient to get full expertise. An individual needs a practical exposure to flourish in a Job or business market. So we offer practical session at IST Power plant after completion of live interactive online classroom session .In this approach a trainees can fulfill his/her knowledge in a very effective way and time.

We offer project-based blended learning experiences that promote academic and career success for Technical Education.

Traditional Learning vs. IST Skill Training

Education is all about learning the theory. Traditionally, an education may reinforce knowledge in which that you already have a foundation.
And that's where IST Skill training differs; IST training gives you the skills to do something rather than just know about something. Training can be specific to your need, your work experience or your skills-gap.
