Course description

QQI Level 6 Micro Solar Photovoltaic Systems Implementation (6N0306)

The purpose of this course is to equip learners with the relevant knowledge, skill and competence to implement micro scale solar photo-voltaic (p-v) projects, up to 11 kilowatt, according to the applicable standards, legislation, guidelines, and manufacturer’s specifications, whilst working autonomously.

Contractors must successfully complete both the QQI Level 6 Micro Solar Photovoltaic Systems Implementation (6N0306) and QQI Level 6 Electrical Installation and Commissioning of Micro Generators Award (6N0307) courses in order to register with SEAI as an approved contractor for Solar PV grants.

The course will involve theory and practical work. On completion you will be able to:

  • Describe the main p-v cell technologies including the characteristics, configurations, and components of solar p-v systems
  • Describe factors affecting solar p-v output to include tilt, orientation, over shading and p-v module mismatch
  • Describe the relationship between rated output at standard test conditions and actual output in use
  • Summarise the planning requirements for solar p-v installations including any possible exemptions
  • Summarise relevant legislation, standards and regulation to include CE marking and New Approach 2 directives, product testing and certification standards and building regulations
  • Describe maintenance requirements for solar p-v systems to include cleaning, checking torque of fixing bolts and visual inspection of array integrity and electrical connections
  • Propose an appropriate mounting technique based on aerodynamic and static load considerations
  • Describe the potential hazards and mitigating action associated with solar p-v operation to include electrical hazards, “always live” systems, labeling and signage requirements and fixing of panels
  • Describe the relevant health and safety requirements for installation to include working at height, securing ladders, safety requirements for scaffolds, guard rails and personal safety equipment
  • Describe the recommended installation sequence for solar p-v systems identifying relevant standards and guidelines applicable to each phase of installation
  • Outline the main considerations for roof-mounted solar p-v systems including roof types, construction, loading, integrity and weather proofing
  • Assess roof loading and load bearing capacity and recommend suitable mounting and weather sealing techniques
  • Use the recommended tools for deploying all required solar p-v system components in accordance with manufacturer’s specification
  • Carry out a feasibility study for solar p-v system to include a resource assessment and economic evaluation
  • Generate a design layout for a solar p-v system to include a specification of array location, mounting techniques, cable runs and inverter location
  • Assess the conformance of a solar p-v system in accordance with standards for module fixings, fixing of the array, weather proofing, and integrity of the array
  • Test a solar p-v installation to include normal shutdown, emergency shutdown, and power control against solar intensity
