How To Design A Solar PV System .
We get so many questions from readers, saying that they want to size and design a solar pv system for their home, and that they would like to learn how to do it properly. I mean like the professionals do it. The truth is that this critical first step in any solar pv design requires quite a bit of expertise and a certain level of mathematics.
Like any repeatative task, solar pv system design has been made easier and faster through the use of modern computers. There are several software packages on the market that let you determine who much solar energy will be available over the course of a year in the location that you pick.
These same software package allow you to size and design the sytstem to your requirements.
It is critical to the performance of the system and the expectations of the home owner that the system is designed using the proper assumptions.
In this webinar, the German software package PVSYST, ( the Germans are so far ahead when it come to solar energy ), so it is bit of a commercial for product but really the basics that your will learn will be the same for any commercially available software package.

So here is the webinar lecture entitled : Demonstration of PV Design Using PVSYST with Dr. Jeffery Lee Johnson.
