Strathmore Energy Research Centre (SERC) was contracted by the Industrial Promotion Services East Africa (IPS) from 3rd to 8th June 2019 to conduct a specialized training for twelve participants on solar PV systems that are connected to the grid. The main objective of the specialized training was to equip the participants with in-depth knowledge and skills required to design, install, operate, maintain, and troubleshoot grid-connected solar PV systems.


During the five-day course, participants understood the solar PV technology and its application in the grid tie captive systems; the operation and maintenance scope, needs and requirements at the plants; key steps to follow in designing stand-alone and grid tie solar PV systems; and regulation, licensing and project development. The training methodology involved lecture sessions and discussions, practical exercises, sharing of field experience and projects implemented, design and assessment examination and a site visit to the installation.
