A 2 weeks course on Practical Electronics with an emphasis on Solar PV Systems for Technicians
This will help Technicians to Sell a Solar PV System and Install and maintain the same.
The idea behind this course is to help in reaching Solar to a wider base of users and at the same time give them the confidence of a Local Technicians expertise to be able to Support the System
For the Participant of this Course it will help him or her understand how to Configure a System for a Customers specific requirement.
Besides Basic Electronics it will cover the finer points of a good solar installation and tips to maintain the solar system so that the Customer can earn a decent amount from a Sale and at the same time gain a happy and satisfied Customer.
Registrations now open.

When I first started with Solar Lighting it was to create a simple robust street light.
Created a Light that was good and robust. It was a typical Solar Street Light.
The LEDs were superflux capable of being driven to 50mA - The cooling was provided by the four leads and the PCB was made with lots of copper area to dissipate the little heat.
The design as based around a PIC micro-controller and the output was switching via the controller.
This was in 2005.
Since then I have tried various designs in lighting streets, gardens, porches and pathways.
I am on track to now make one of the most efficient lighting for Gardens, Walkways, pathways and porch lighting.
At home we need Hot water for bathing and washing. Industries require hot water for various processes including space heating and climate control.
Solar Hot water systems are the best choice for domestic as well as industrial use. They are more efficient when compared with Solar PV in converting the suns energy into useable energy.
A typical Domestic hot water system consists of a Solar Thermal Panel (1, 2, 3 or even 4 panels are used for a single system). The other important component is the Solar Tank. This is where hot water is stored. It is thermally insulated and is the equivalent of a Battery in a PV system.
Although there are two basic types of Panels - Evacuated tube type & Flat Plate type - the Flat Plate Collector is more commonly used.
Each Panel is approximately 2 square Metres. It generates the equivalent of 5 KWh of electricity on a typical Sunny day in most parts of India. (The generation will vary by geography & season). If we compare this with a 2 square metres …
