Trainers: Senior trainer of the French TRANSENERGIE new energy center

Training Location: ICARE, Wuhan

Training time: January 15 – 17, 2013

The number of trainees: About 15 people

Training fees: This training course is an EU-funded project, training fees waived. Only 600 RMB per person will be charged to cover the costs for training materials and the lunches and dinners during the 3 days training, accommodation will be arranged on the own expense of trainees.

Training Purpose:

To transmit essential knowledge on the conception, the implementation and the monitoring of photovoltaic plant connected to the medium/high electrical power network (from 10kWp to some MWp)

At the end of this training, each participant will be able to:

- Understand the operation of a photovoltaic installation connected to the electrical network

- Understand general characteristics of the main photovoltaic system components

- Handle the whole electrical engineering of a photovoltaic installation

- Through interactive questions with the trainer, the trainees have the opportunity to get feed back

for solving the technical problems encountered in their practical work.
