With the recent emphasis by the incoming administration in the US and other countries around the world, solar energy is again being seriously considered for widespread implementation. Since the 1970s, a number of breakthroughs in photovoltaic technology have made electricity generation from light more feasible and economical. Today, many companies are now developing and introducing technologies to harness power from the sun.
The number of different technologies and configurations is increasing rapidly. It is becoming quite difficult to keep track of the developments, let alone understand them. An Overview of Photovoltaics is a 1-day course that describes photovoltaic technology, its operation, the basic PV technologies, PV packaging, and system level implementation and issues. This course is designed for every manager, engineer, and technician entering the photovoltaic field, whether it be working directly for a photovoltaic manufacturer or system integrator, or selling equipment to the PV market and PV manufacturers.
