CHEETAH Nano-MOOC: Simulation of solar cells & modules with equivalent circuits

December, 14th - 29th 2017 - Online - CHEETAH webinar platform

Prof. David Fuertes - UPM-IES


CHEETAH e-learning platform has launched a series of nano-MOOCs Massive Online Open Courses  “Learning PV at Cheetah speed”  proposed and realized by Instituto de Energía Solar Universidad Politécnica de Madrid - IES-UPM under the leadership of prof. Carlos del Cañizo.

They are independent courses so any interested student, younger researcher and also, Engineers, R&D staff can register for just one of them, of for the three of them if they like.

Interested participants can follow at their own path, with an estimated student effort of around 20 hours hours of dedication from the student, including the presentations, readings and exercise.

They are very specific beyond “Fundamentals of PV”, focused on a relevant topic for researchers and PhD students, and accessible online, so that anyone can access based om his/her own needs and time availability.

The following courses were  launched, as a pilot experience, so if the esperience will be successful, the activity can also be transfered to upcoming intiative to share knowledge  in PV in very wide communities

  • Designing dopant diffusions in silicon solar cells

  • Circuit simulation of solar cells and modules

  • Advanced topics on solar cell

 

Abstract

The third course and final of this series of nano-MOOCs Massive Online Open Courses  “Learning PV at Cheetah speed”  proposed and realized by Instituto de Energía Solar Universidad Politécnica de Madrid - IES-UPM is offered by prof. David Fuertes IES-UPM and it is titled “Simulation of solar cells & modules with equivalent circuits". This short on line course aims:

  • To present the necessity and the nature of specific simulation tools in diagnostics, optimization and prediction of operating solar cells and modules

  • To understand circuit theory as a simplification of Maxwell’s equations and the conditions imposed thereby


Video-presentations, suggested readings and exercises  will help students and younger researchers to go deeper into this very important topic with an estimated student effort of around 20 hours.
Interested participants would be supported in the evaluation of  their achieved learning level by some exercises can express their will during the period Dec. 16th –Dec  29th by KEP-CHEETAH KNOLEDGE EXCHANGE PLATFORM  event web page
