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
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
