Get battery trained to prepare for new standard

To prepare businesses for the new battery standard AS/NZS 5139, Glen Morris is running a series of four-day solar and battery storage training courses at the Smart Energy Lab. The intensive, hands-on course will provide participants with fast-tracked, detailed knowledge and experience in battery storage and smart energy systems, with a particular focus on compliance to battery standards.

The course will deliver a detailed understanding of how to size, configure, program and design on-grid solar hybrid systems (solar panels plus battery storage) and off-grid standalone power systems. No prior knowledge is required, although a basic understanding of solar PV systems is beneficial.

No live LV electrical work will be undertaken by unlicensed participants, thus there is no electrical licensing prerequisite. All practical system training will be done on ELV (<120 VDC and <50 VAC) systems and pre-wired LV systems for non-electricians.

The workshop is suitable for sales staff, managers, installers and electricians; covers grid-connect (hybrid) and off-grid solutions; and has small group numbers for individual attention.

Courses will run in October through to December 2019. For dates or to register, click here.

About the venue

Located about a 75-minute drive from Melbourne Airport, Smart Energy Lab is located within Moora Moora Community Coop — an off-grid community consisting of 30 homes. Moora Moora Coop has been living and demonstrating off-grid living for over 45 years.

The training facility has been generously supplied by many of the leading off-grid and on-grid hybrid system manufacturers. Attendees will work with an extensive range of the latest battery and inverter models.
