Solar Power Training System (8010-2)

The Solar Power Training System uses a modular design approach to introduce students to the production of electrical energy from solar power, with emphasis on the use and operation of photovoltaic panels. The Solar Power Training System mainly consists of a solar panel test bench and a monocrystalline silicon solar panel. By installing the solar panel in the solar panel test bench, students can conduct several indoor experiments on solar panel operation and performance using the artificial light source of the test bench. Students can also install the solar panel on a tripod to perform outdoor experiments using sunlight.

Features & Benefits

  • The training system allows easy experimentation with the operation of solar panels and the storage of electrical energy in batteries.
  • Solar panel experiments can be performed both indoors, using the solar panel test bench as light source, or outdoors, using sunlight.
  • The course curriculum of the Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly flexible and allows a multitude of different customized training solutions.
  • The courseware includes student manuals and instructor guides with all the theory required to perform the hands-on experiments.
  • All workstations, modules, and components are very sturdy to ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding environment such as a training laboratory.
  • The modular design approach of the training equipment allows a large variety of courses to be performed using a small number of modules, without unnecessary duplication of equipment.
  • All electrical components can be interconnected without electric shock hazard since all live parts of the connection leads are concealed and insulated.
  • All electrical symbols representing the components used in a laboratory exercise are clearly silk-screened on the front panel of the modules.
