Grid Connect Design

Short Course


The course’s theory and practical components develop skills necessary for accreditation and as designers, you can ensure your customers will maximise the production output of the solar system. This gives customers the opportunity to enjoy generating their own power and minimising their electricity consumption from the grid.

Suitable For:

This course is designed for qualified, licensed electricians as well as Electrical/Electronic Engineers with suitable prerequisites.

Course Outcomes:

Upon completion of this course, participants will need to enrol in the Grid Connected Installation course for the other unit ( UEENEEK125A) to successfully complete both units for CEC Design accreditation.
Participants will attain credit for the following nationally recognised units of competency: UEENEEEK135A Design grid connected photovoltaic power supply systems; (UEENEEK125A ‘Solve Basic Problems in Photovoltaic Energy Apparatus’ is embedded in the Installation course which is also a requirement for the Design Accreditation).
Participants can then present this to the Clean Energy Council (formerly Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) to apply for accreditation.

Topics Covered:

Students will also:

  • technical standards, regulations and codes for general electrical installations
  • electricity distributors, supply requirements
  • electrical metering arrangements
  • occupational Health and Safety principles
  • electrical safe working practices
  • develop Grid Connected Power supply systems Designs
  • obtain approval for Grid Connected Power Supply Systems Design
  • grid connected inverters


The following units of competency must be completed prior to undertaking this course: UEENEEE104A Solve problems in D.C. circuits UEENEEE137A Document and apply measures to control Work Health and Safety (WHS) risks associated with Electrotechnology work


UEENEEE108A Lay wiring/cabling and terminate accessories for extra low voltage (ELV) circuits


UEENEEEG106A Terminate cables, cords and accessories for low voltage circuits UEENEEK125A Solve basic problems in photovoltaic energy apparatus and systems
