The Solar PV Fundamental Training Kit provides a big range of experiments from the physical fundamentals of photovoltaics, to the study of PV system components, and the design of complex PV systems on a laboratory scale. The Training Kit offers experiments for both electrical engineering and photovoltaics. The inverter displays the generation of alternating current from the solar panel current. And a number of different electrical consumers, such as a super bright LED or a light bulb, complete the kit, which can be used to compare their performance.
