Skills to be acquired in this module

After successful completion of the module students should be able to:

·         understand, describe and compare major technologies for solar energy use: solar thermal and
          photovoltaic systems

·         analyse various system components and their interconnections within a solar energy system.

·         critically appraise and assess various technologies for solar energy use and components
          involved in such solar systems.

·         size and evaluate the performance of solar systems as a function of their operation
          conditions, components and system layout

-       critically evaluate non-technical impact and side effects when implementing renewable
        energy supply systems
