  • UEERE0016   Install, configure and commission LV grid-connected photovoltaic power systems
    • CIT Code: ELEC1561
      Cost: Full fee $750.00
      Description: This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to install and commission a low voltage (LV) photovoltaic (PV) power system to the grid power system.It includes working safely and to industry installation standards, matching PV components specified for a given location, placing and securing system components accurately, making required circuit connections and completing the necessary installation documentation.The skills and knowledge described in this unit require a licence or permit to practice in the workplace where work is carried out on electrical installations which are designed to operate at voltages greater than 50 volt (V) alternating current (a.c.) or 120 V direct current (d.c.).Competency development activities in this unit are subject to regulations directly related to licensing. Where a licence or permit to practice is not held, a relevant contract of training, such as an Australian Apprenticeship, is required.Additional and/or other conditions may apply in some jurisdictions subject to regulations related to electrical work. Practice in the workplace and during training is also subject to work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) regulations.Note: Those holding an Unrestricted Electrician's Licence or equivalent issued in an Australian state or territory meet the prerequisite requirements of this unit.
      Prerequisites: UEEEL0012 Install low voltage wiring, appliances, switchgear and associated accessories
      UEERE0022 Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
  • UEERE0022   Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
    • CIT Code: ELEC1562
      Cost: Full fee $750.00
      Description: This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to solve problems with solar radiation, photovoltaic (PV) modules and the impact that tilt, location and orientation has on the output of a PV system.It includes providing known solutions to predictable problems in photovoltaic energy modules and system operated at extra-low voltage (ELV) and low voltage (LV).The skills and knowledge described in this unit do not require a license to practice in the workplace provided equipment is not connected to installation wiring at voltages above 50 volt (V) alternating current (a.c.) or 120 V direct current (d.c.). However, other conditions may apply in some states/territories subject to regulations related to electrical work.No other licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.Note: Those holding an Unrestricted Electrician's Licence or equivalent issued in an Australian state or territory meet the prerequisite requirements of this unit.

      UEECD0043 Solve problems in direct current circuits
      Or
      UEECD0044 Solve problems in multiple path circuits
      UEECD0046 Solve problems in single path circuits
      UEECD0025 Lay wiring/cabling and terminate accessories for extra-low voltage (ELV) circuits
  • UEERE0011   Design grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems
    • CIT Code: ELEC1559
      Cost: Full fee $750.00
      Description: This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to design grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) power supply systems.It includes preparing to design, and developing and obtaining approval for grid connected power supply systems. It also includes designing grid-connected PV power supply system installation, following design briefs, incorporating schemes for protection of persons and property from dangers of system malfunctions, ensuring safety and performance standards and functional requirements are meet, and documenting design calculations and criteria.No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
