About this course

Everyone knows that the entire world is slowly moving towards renewable sources for generating electricity to become a part of protecting the environment by limiting global warming below or close to 1.5ºC.  Since solar is one of the major sources in  renewable, those who are interested or looking to work in the solar sector should also know about all the basic power electronics w.r.t the solar PV applications to become a perfect solar energy user or provider. Selection of the right electronics for your solar application is very important to become a perfect solar energy user. We all know that solar energy is abundant and freely available everywhere but the direct available solar energy cannot be used without any power conversion devices for our daily life applications. So the selection of the right electronics for any application not only saves energy and money, but also plays a significant role in protecting the environment. 


In this course we will briefly discuss all the basics of power electronics involved in the solar applications with real time examples. In addition this course gives you the impact of choosing the correct power electronics for your application.
