Mr. Keene M. Matsuda, Electrical Engineer with Black & Veatch of Black and Veatch

Topic:

Solar PV Design Basics & Arrays from Rooftop to Utility-Scale

We will begin with the sun and solar cell basics, then cover some of the more unique design basics per NEC Article 690. Numerous examples of the different technologies and array types will be highlighted.As of January 1, 2017 the State of California adopted the 2016 California Electrical Code which is based on the 2014 National Electrical Code. We will review and discuss some of the significant changes, especially those that the speaker has had personal experience with because of work in other states. We will review some of the corrections and associated issues.
