Commissioning of Hybrid Energy Systems with the SMA FUEL SAVE CONTROLLER Version 2.0

In sunny regions of the world, PV plants in combination with diesel generators and/or the utility grid have already become the most economical way to generate electrical energy, even without subsidies.

The commissioning of the SMA Fuel Save Controller 2.0 is the most important part of such projects, because correct settings for the controller are essential for the stable operation of the system. The commissioning of the Fuel Save Controller can now be done by the plant designer him- or herself. Local commissioning significantly reduces the cost and the effort of the project.

This advanced training qualifies you to commission the SMA Fuel Save Controller Version 2.0 according to the SMA commissioning process.

Please do not forget to bring your laptop and a pocket calculator. The seminar consists of one day and includes practical Workshops at the SMA Hybrid Test Center.

This seminar is part of our training week on Fuel Save solutions. This week consists of two seminars, “Designing of Hybrid Energy Systems with the SMA Fuel Save Controller Version 2.0” and ”Commissioning of Hybrid Energy Systems with the SMA Fuel Save Controller Version 2.0”.

Please note that places for this training are strictly limited. In rare cases, we may therefore have to cancel bookings.
