10 CPD Points - Shading Masterclass - Smart Energy 2022 - Virtual On Demand

The training sessions have been recorded during Smart Energy 2022 and are available virtually on SEC’s learning platform – Thinkific. You will be required to login or create a user account to access the training.

The training session includes presentations from leading solution providers for solar PV installations with shaded and partially shaded solar PV installations.

  • James Sturch, Technical Director Rest of World, Solaredge – Efficiency and Yield
  • Rod Dewar, Solutions Manager, Fronius Australia – How Modern Inverters deal with Shading
  • David Minchin, Senior Standards Engineer, Enphase – The Gold Standards for Complex Sites


Knowledge: Participants will recognise and understand the complexity of solar PV installations depending on site, are made more complex with the introduction of shading. Participants will be stepped through the technical challenges, and some of the solutions when designing systems impacted by shade.

Comprehension: Participants will be able to identify, describe and explain solar installation situations that require shading to be taken into account, and a range of responses available to overcome this limitation.

Analysis: Participants will be able to compare different approaches to managing shading in designing and installing solar PV installations.

Create: Participants will be empowered to develop site specific designs that take into account the nature and duration of shading that will impact on the solar PV system and design a system accordingly.
