Systems & Real PV Performance

Module Summary

University of Loughborough

May 13 - May 24 2019


This module aims to broaden understanding of PV from the lab scale to full scale operation of 'real world' PV modules. Students will attend a lecture course that covers module fabrication, encapsulation and interconnect design, performance characterisation and the aspects surrounding the ageing, degradation and failure of PV modules. Guest lectures from key industry members will be provided and the many aspects of commercial PV technlogies discussed.

The module includes several workshops, e.g. on LabView and Matlab, aimed at providing training on useful skills for your PhD

Students will also visit the UK's largest solar farm at Wymeswold
