Additional Information
Your local IEEE PES/IAS Chapter is offering this seminar on solar photovoltaic and thermal solar technologies and integration with the electrical distribution system. We will cover the equipment and system utilized as well as the appropriate standards and codes. We will share lessons learned during the design and construction of a recent PV solar project in the Tampa Bay area.

This seminar will teach the fundamental concepts in Photovoltaic technology. Topics covered will be: Overview of PV Systems, Sunshine basics, how PV works, components of a PV system, setup, configuration, sizing, wiring and controls, relevant sections of NEC and IEEE standards. We will cover an application of a solar PV system integration into the Tampa Electric distribution system.
