Solar Power Production
As solar power production becomes more and more affordable for residential applications, no wonder the number of installations worldwide is blooming. So comes the need to train qualified technicians in understanding and maintaining these systems.
Our solar power learning solutions come in modular packages that will fit your training needs starting with the fundamentals of photovoltaic panels and how they work all the way to actual photovoltaic energy production systems operating in stand-alone or grid-tied operation.
Computerized tools made for learning
To guide students through their learning path, Festo Didactic provides state-of-the-art data acquisition tools for easy, safe and fast measurements in order to speed up the setup time but also reduce the downtime of using standard measuring instruments. The Data Acquisition and Control Interface comes also with an oscilloscope, a phasor analyzer, a data table and a graph on specifically designed software optimized for learning purposes.
