October 15 @ 08:00 - October 18 @ 13:30
Please save the dates of 15 to 18 October 2019 for a Training School on the ‘Evaluation of performance degradation of PV systems’ of COST Action PEARL PV in Malta.
The Training School’s detailed program, its admission criteria, selection procedure and travel information to Malta will be announced soon on this webpage.
This PEARL PV Training School on the topic:
“Evaluation of the performance degradation of PV systems – influencing factors, failure modes and their detectability and effect on economic viability”
will take place at the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology MCAST in Paola, Malta, between 15th and 18th October 2019. It will focus on reliability topics of PV systems with special attention on degradation effects of PV materials, components and systems. Various failure modes and their detectability will be illustrated. Furthermore their impact on the electrical performance and economic viability of PV systems will be calculated. In a 3.5 days program with expert lectures, on-site practical courses and excursions, trainees will gain a deeper understanding for the causes of potential ageing induced electrical performance losses and learn how to determine and measure various failure modes. The trainees will learn about key topics of reliability for state-of-the-art crystalline Si-technologies as well as for thin film and emerging technologies from PEARL PV Working Group members and other international experts.
Training School trainees (students, researchers, educators and practitioners) will participate in multiple introductive expert lectures, interactive seminars, practical courses including team action work, study tours, and much more. Interested in gaining and transferring knowledge on reliability of the various photovoltaic technologies to your institute and country? Then please join this program to learn from experts and from best practice projects. Also you are very welcome to share your own experiences!
