UEERE0061 - Design grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems

    Unit code: UEERE0061 | Study level: TAFE
    UEERE0054 - Conduct site survey for grid-connected photovoltaic and battery storage systems; and
    UEEEL0039 - Design, install and verify compliance and functionality of general electrical installations
    (Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


    This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to design grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) power supply systems.
    It includes designing grid-connected PV power supply system, following design briefs, utilising data/information from site survey to determine design requirements, ensuring safety and performance standards and functional requirements are met, documenting and obtaining approval for design.This unit is appropriate for Licenced Electricians or Electrical Engineers with responsibility for designing grid-connected photovoltaic power supply systems.


    For Melbourne campuses

    Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each units learning outcomes & performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

    Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

    • applying relevant workplace procedures and practices, work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including using risk control measures
    • developing grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) power supply system design based on site survey data and within safety and functional requirements and budget limitations and meet design brief
    • documenting and presenting final design.

    Required reading

    The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the VU Polytechnic and/or via the Victoria University Polytechnic e-Learning system.
