Commercial Solar Electric Systems

Summary and Final Tasks


Wrapping up the trade show scenario we started, by now you can define and choose all types of mounting structures whether they are roof mount, pole mount, or ground mount system. You can also choose the required mechanical and electrical BOS for a perfect PV design and run the required load calculations for the racking structure based on the manufacturer's datasheets.

Whether you work for a solar firm or your own business, you can easily make the best selection of components for the entire PV system. Furthermore, you can suggest the optimal solutions for each PV system type based on the properties of the location of the system.

In the next lesson, we will take a detour to visit one of the main concepts when we design PV systems, which is system sizing for both grid-connected and stand-alone PV applications.
