Basic knowledge of solar radiation and solar resources phy642 Renewable Energy Technologies I
After successful completion of the module students should be able to: - explain the concepts of physical processes governing the surface solar irradiance available for solar energy applications - model the solar radiation and show their expertise in application, adaptation and development of models - discuss state-of-the-art-methods in satellite-based irradiance estimation and solar power forecasting - categorize and feature different PV systems (PV on-grid, PV off-grid, PV pumping, PV-hybrid) - explain concepts behind PV system design - explain the operation principles of PV systems
This specialization module covers more in-depth topics concerning photovoltaic systems and solar energy meteorology. Based on their knowledge about the solar resource and photovoltaic technology, students learn to design a photovoltaic system for various environmental conditions and predict its performance. I. Adv. Solar Energy Meteorology (Lecture - 90 h workload) - Physics of radiative processes in the atmosphere - Physical modelling of atmospheric radiative transfer (incl. computing tools) - Solar irradiance modelling for solar energy applications - Solar spectral irradiance: Theory and relevance for solar energy systems - Satellite-based estimation of solar irradiance - Solar irradiance (and solar power) forecasting - Solar radiation measurements: Basics and setup of highquality measurement system II. Photovoltaic Systems (Lecture - 90 h workload) - Detailed description of involved balance of system components (e.g. inverter, charge controllers) - System Operation - Detailed System Design -from meteorological input across component rating to energy service output
