Title: PV Systems Safety


Contact Hours: 2 Hours Technical

Language: English

Format: Lecture (No Video)



This course was made as a reference with helpful and easily-accessible instructions on how to work safely with PV systems. Some recommendations are based on the common sense and they will help readers to keep safe. Course includes description of specific hazards, their frequent causes, and ways to prevent and avoid them.

This course has three different sections:

PV System Characteristics and Hazards section provides the background of PV system characteristics and relevant hazards involved with PV systems. Recommended safe-guards are provided.

Safe PV Systems section presents a discussion of relevant safety standards and codes, and regulations that need to be followed and applied when designing, installing, testing and commissioning a PV system.

The For Your Health section contains a discussion of possible injuries and elaborates on basic First Aid concepts.

Each installation presents hazards to engineers, technicians and maintenance staff. Helping you distinguish these hazards and avert injury is the main goal of this course.

This course is suitable for technicians and engineers involved in PV system installation and operation. Presented details cover issues related to safe work with PV systems. Upon successful completion readers will be able to recognize critical PV safety issues and will learn ways to avoid potential accidents.


Learning Objectives:

This continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • PV system characteristics and potential hazards
  • Relevant safety standards and codes
  • Possible injuries and basic first aid concepts


About The Author 

Velimir started his professional career in the Electrical Engineering Institute "Nikola Tesla" Belgrade as Project Engineer working on various distribution system planning projects. He moved to Middle East where he is involved in analysis and planning of the EHV and MV transmission and distribution networks as well as conceptual and detailed design, installation and commissioning of substations for major consultancies and local utility companies. He also got significant experience working for the major oil companies solving their complex operational issues helping them to improve overall production.

He modelled various phenomena in the power systems including steady state, dynamic, harmonic and fast transient responses. He has good knowledge in substation design, HV cable sizing and installation and earthing system design. He understands how projects are successfully managed throughout complete cycle. He has profound knowledge of power system modelling and analysis software tools, CAD design and GIS systems.     

He has rich experience working on projects in UK, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Bahrain and Serbia. Velimir authored several technical papers that were published in IEEE proceedings. He is a member of IEEE Power Society and CIGRE.
