ABOUT THE TRAINING
The topics of the two-day introductory training for new professions in the renewable sources of energy sector are hybrid photovoltaic and thermal collectors. After previous analysis on the required skills for the renewable sources sector, that addressed the new job profiles and the required skills for them, we identified two job profiles: Fitter, installer and maintenance worker for hybrid photovoltaic and thermal collectors and also Fitter, installer and maintenance worker for photovoltaic panels, for which we created suitable job standards and programs.
The last part of the training explains what is a PVT collector, its integral parts, the types of PVT collectors and the principles upon which the PVT collector works. It explains about PVT system sizing – excel sheet as well as how do you test the PVT collector, by doing a SPF test. Also, measuring of all the parameters in the PVT system by the Plazma test center and how do you determine the capacity of the installed system, ROI, cost savings during the exploitation of a PVT system. The training also mentions the new generations of PVT combined systems that include heat pumps that have direct freon circulation with measurements and past experiences.
STATEMENT FROM A TRAINING PARTICIPANT:
“The training had a clear vision about the goal and , more importantly, about what benefits would the companies get by discussing the given topics with proven experts from the solar sector. I was impressed by the interaction during the classes and the approach that was used to explain the topics. The event organization was great and both the theoretical and practical approach that the trainers had was focused on real projects and situations. I am positive that a lot of the topics we discussed will be applied to the everyday work processes.”
