2nd International PhotoVoltaic Systems Summer School (PVSSS) @ TU DELFT

[SUMMER SCHOOL]

Delft, NL July 1-8, 2018

 

The 2nd nternational PhotoVoltaic Systems Summer School (PVSSS) is a 1-week long  summer school. iT is intended  for attendees holding at least a MSc degree and it aims to give theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience on different technical and installation aspects of photovoltaic systems (design, installation,horizon, monitoring and norms)

The Summer school will feature:

* A stimulating opening session given by prof. dr. John Schmitz (Dean EEMCS faculty at TUDelft, NL);
 * A series of fourteen 45-min long lectures (~10.5 hours of  theory), given by experts in solar energy from both TU Delft and other (international) universities;
 * An inspiring plenary talk given by dr. A. Bett (co-director at Fraunhofer ISE, DE);
* Ten 2.5-hours long practical sessions (25 hours of hands-on), hosted in the PV Laboratory of the PVMD group at TUDelft;
 * An afternoon tour visiting three PV companies in the area of Delft and The Hague (Kipp&Zonen , Exasun and Eternal Sun);
* Three social events

The fee per person includes:

10.5 hours of lectures (14 x 45 min):
