In this hour and a half presentation, our speaker will give an overview of how panel and inverter selection influences PV design, and also introduce array and field design issues.? After a discussion of the NEC PV and utility interconnection requirements, he will illustrate practical examples how to design 20 kW, 100 kW, and 10 MW photovoltaic plants, starting from single line diagrams, and going from calculations to drawings.
Our speaker is Charles Cunha, for Square D, Inc.? He serves as a Regional Power Systems Engineer for Square D and received a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from California State University, Fresno in 1983.? Charles joined PG&E in 1984 as a planning engineer and joined Roseville Electric serving as the utilities engineering manager.?
