What Skills Do Solar Energy Technicians Need?

Once a novelty, solar panels now appear on tops of homes and businesses, atop informational road signs, and in groups by the hundreds in large solar “farms” all across the country. The growing interest in alternative energy and renewable resources has created a shortage of qualified solar energy technicians throughout the green energy sector.

Solar technicians need basic knowledge and hands-on skills in a variety of foundational technologies, such as electrical and electronics, as well as advanced abilities related directly to the latest solar energy technologies. Amatrol’s Solar PV Troubleshooting Learning System (950-SPT1) teaches a range of solar photovoltaic (PV) operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting skills through a unique combination of eLearning curriculum and hands-on experience with real industrial solar PV components.

Amatrol’s interactive multimedia eLearning curriculum teaches solar PV troubleshooting topics using text, audio, video, interactive quizzes, and stunning 3D animations to appeal to a variety of different learning styles. Learners begin with the basics, such as PV module operation and performance, solar batteries, and PV array characteristics.

From there, they steadily advance to more complex concepts and skills, including charge controller configuration and operation; grid-connected PV systems; battery backups; and system- and component-level troubleshooting.

Learners using Amatrol’s eLearning will find that its comprehensive, detailed curriculum teaches both the foundational knowledge and practical hands-on skills they need to troubleshoot the most common solar PV systems, including AC, DC, and grid-connected systems.

How Important is Hands-On Solar PV Skill Development?

Real Industrial Solar PV Components

To be fully prepared to enter the workforce, students and workers must possess more than just knowledge about relevant solar PV troubleshooting concepts. Effective training must also focus on hands-on skill development with real industrial components.

Amatrol’s Solar PV Troubleshooting Learning System features a wide variety of industry-standard solar PV equipment to teach relevant hands-on skills. For example, the 950-SPT1 includes a mobile workstation with a combiner box, MPPT charge controller, micro inverter, grid interactive inverter, programmer, and communications gateway and hub.

For a complete solar PV troubleshooting training experience, the required Solar PV Array Station (95-SPA1) adds multiple solar panels to enable students and workers to duplicate realistic situations with both series and parallel connections. The mobile array station allows instructors to take advantage of sunny days without having to move the entire trainer. It is also equipped with a sun simulator to enable indoor use.

What’s the Best Way to Teach Solar PV Troubleshooting Skills?

The hallmark of a highly-skilled solar energy technician is the ability to effectively troubleshoot solar PV systems at both the component and system levels. So how do students and workers acquire these essential troubleshooting skills?

Amatrol’s Solar PV Troubleshooting Learning System features FaultPro, Amatrol’s exclusive electronic fault insertion system. FaultPro allows instructors to replicate realistic system and component failures by electronically inserting a wide variety of mechanical and electrical faults.

FaultPro’s computer-based faults automatically track progress, enabling learners to gain troubleshooting skills in a self-paced environment that ensures that faults are inserted safely, protecting both learners and equipment. FaultPro also allows instructors to identify specific areas where students and workers need to improve, so they can target those areas for additional practice.
