Module 4: Components of solar photovoltaic system
A solar system consists of various components, each with a specific function. For technicians to successfully install home back-up systems that run on solar energy, they need to understand the importance of these components, their functions within the system, and how they are interconnected. This module describes the individual components and their functions. Learning outcomes At the end of this module, the participant is able to  Describe the basic functions of the components of a solar system  Identify the different configurations for solar

Module 5 – Solar Photovoltaic System Configuration
Solar power systems can be installed in a variety of configurations which are dependent on the location and application. This module introduces students to the different configurations for solar power systems and the components required to achieve them. Learning outcomes At the end of this module, the participant is able to  Identify the various configurations of solar power systems  Suggest an appropriate configuration for a solar power system based on application

Module 6 – Basic System Sizing
In order for an installer to successfully install a 1 kWP solar system, they need to understand how to select the appropriate components for the system. Learning outcomes At the end of this module, the participant is able to  Analyse the requirements of a solar PV system  Select appropriate system components to achieve expected outputs
