Grounding and Bonding Photovoltaic and Energy Storage Systems

Date: May 17, 2024
May 18, 2024

This advanced training is designed for solar professionals who want to further their understanding of proper grounding and bonding methods for photovoltaic and energy storage systems. While grounding and bonding are critical for any electrical distribution system, it is especially pertinent for PV Systems due to the potential of high short circuit and ground-fault currents, as well as the possible and likely exposure high magnitude and short duration lightning currents. This course will offer an in-depth exploration of these essential applications in the context of solar renewable systems and battery storage.
