PV Solar Operation Maintenance Master Course

A professional Operation & Maintenance (O&M) service package ensures that the photovoltaic system will maintain high levels of technical and consequently economic performance over its lifetime. Currently, it is widely acknowledged by all stakeholders that high quality O&M services mitigate the potential risks, improve the levelised cost of electricity (lCOE) and Power Purchase agreement (PPa) prices and positively impact the return on investment (ROI). The O&M phase is by far the longest phase.

This on-demand training outlines the necessary steps for planning and directing an operations and maintenance (O&M) program for the life of a photovoltaic (PV) system across a variety of system types, sizes, and environments. The course instructs on how to optimize system performance, consider environmental and site conditions when preparing an O&M plan, understand warranties and guarantees, and how to budget for ongoing O&M.

By completing this course, learners will be able to:

Reduce environmental and economic costs of fossil fuel energy and increase self-supply of renewable energy by providing information and resources on proper photovoltaic (PV) operations and maintenance (O&M) Customize an O&M strategy to achieve renewable energy delivery that corresponds to green building goals by recognizing differences in system size, type, site conditions, and environmental conditions.

Considered one of the most critical roles in the PV system design and installation process, project Design and management ensures the system delivery in the best desired timeline, quality, and budget. Project management tackles the methodology required for planning, scheduling, and managing resources including manpower and materials. Solar PV Project Design Masters course enables you to fully understand the technical aspects of PV projects, which include procurement, planning, scheduling, engineering, integration, and commissioning.This Course also provides a vast opportunities in getting wider knowledge in the areas of concept development, site identification, feasibility study, detailed system design, engineering, construction & commercial operation, operational performance monitoring of solar Utility Scale power projects, financial aspects of the solar power plant like DPR,DSCR,ROI,CUF estimation and CAPEX ,OPEX modelling.


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.
