This class will study the behavior of photovoltaic solar energy systems, focusing on the behavior of “stand-alone” systems. The design of stand-alone photovoltaic systems will be covered. This will include estimation of costs and benefits, taking into account any available government subsidies. Introduction to the hardware elements and their behavior will be included.
