The practice-oriented learning System for teaching of basics in
photovoltaic power engineering
In the future, various and highly attractive job opportunities for
young people are given by a worldwide spread and success of photovoltaic
power engineering. Needs in exploring of new and ecological sources of
energy and activities in climate protection are increasing the demands for
specialist staff in solar technologies.
Educational awareness shows that learning success is the most efficient
when students can deal with the learning subject theoretically and
practically in a comprehensive way! This had been the basic conviction by
developing the “Solar Power Case”. The knowledge provided in the manuals
can immediately be put to the test in practice-related experiments. The
development and choice of the experiments are based on the knowledge
requirements and practical experience of solar specialists.
The Solar Power Case experiments are designed for giving sense of
achievement to the students. A highly organized construction- and storing
system is providing fixed space to each unit inside the case. It is a
matter of relief for students and instructors and guarantees long time of
The Solar Power Case performs a sophisticated teaching aid either to
present the technology in theory and practice or to work on photovoltaic
basic knowledge independently and in student groups. The experiments
enable students to learn by application and experience!
By the Solar Power Case, own school projects can be planned, modelled
and being presented for decision process, for example a solar lighting of
a showcase or an independent illumination of rooms etc. Besides this
direct application, students are able to inform their parents, visitors
and fellow students on photovoltaics during school celebrations and
with integrated photovoltaic module

The Solar Power Case can be applied by the teacher as teching system as
well as by the student as a learning system. In action-based lessons, it
helps the student to learn the coherence between the sun as source of
energy and the energy transformation and –use on basis of photovoltaics.
The case is also illustrating that there are oppotunities of
alternative energy sources.
