Solar power in India is a fast developing industry. The country’s solar installed capacity reached 35.12 GW as of 30 June 2020. India has the lowest capital cost per MW globally of installing solar power plants. The Indian government had an initial target of 20 GW capacity for 2022, which was achieved four years ahead of schedule. In 2015 the target was raised to 100 GW of solar capacity (including 40 GW from rooftop solar) by 2022, targeting an investment of US$100 billion. India has established nearly 42 solar parks to make land available to the promoters of solar plants. In the decade ending 31 March 2020, India expanded its installed solar power capacity by 233 times from 161 MW to 37,627 MW.

Rooftop solar power accounts for 2.1 GW, of which 70% is industrial or commercial. In addition to its large-scale grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) initiative, India is developing off-grid solar power for local energy needs. Solar products have increasingly helped to meet rural needs; by the end of 2015, just under one million solar lanterns were sold in the country, reducing the need for kerosene. That year, 118,700 solar home lighting systems were installed and 46,655 solar street lighting installations were provided under a national program; just over 1.4 million solar cookers were distributed in India.

PROGRAM Objective:

With the exponential job growth in the renewable sector, especially the solar field, it is a time to develop & put new skills to practice. In this course, the audience will gain in-depth exposure about solar plant design both for KW scale rooftop & MW scale Ground-mounted solar plants starting from basics. System design, documentation, cost estimation & net energy yield estimation is fully explained by segregating long lectures into small sections.

The audience will be familiar with the modern software (Autocad, Pvsyst, Sketchup & G-Earth) used in project design. Sample calculations & examples of major critical electrical equipment with pictures demonstrated in a very simple approach. The course will have MCQ & Assessment sessions from time to time to test their understanding & self-evaluation. The assessments will be based on a live project where they will deal with real constraints & solutions which industrialists face during the design stage. All the lectures are equipped with well-managed content with real examples, pictures & topics are arranged sequentially to keep the objective unique.
