Designing 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 designing of PV-Diesel hybrid energy systems is complex, because a reliable control for the PV plant is needed to ensure the smooth operation of the grid. Designers need up-to-date information for using the latest SMA technology in their projects. This advanced seminar qualifies you to understand the functions of the SMA Fuel Save Controller and to design reliable hybrid energy systems using the latest version of the SMA software Sunny Design.

Please do not forget to bring your laptop and a pocket calculator. The seminar consists of two-and-a-half days and includes lessons, workshops with software and a visit to 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”. All seminars can be visited as stand-alone trainings, but if you would like an even deeper and more encompassing understanding, we suggest you attend the entire week.
