About the Course

The energy requirement of the modern human society is growing at an alarming rate. The conventional techniques of conversion of energy to electricity is not able to meet growth of energy requirement due to many reasons. This has led to development of alternative techniques of energy conversion, exploiting long viable non-conventional sources like solar energy, wind energy etc.

In this introductory course we aim at imparting the sound fundamentals encompassing - materials, devices and systems of the solar photovoltaic (PV) technology.

The course has three major thrusts

a) Physics of materials and devices for solar energy conversion.

b) Introduction to different PV systems and Hybrid Systems

c) Case Studies on designing of PV systems
