About This Project

At the beginning of 2015, for a period of two weeks, we were happy to welcome 16 Polish trainees from the Zespół Szkół Technicznych w Dąbrowie Górniczej to Seville to carry out interships in the solar energy sector. They were also given the opportunity to visit the largest solar complex of Europe. During their internship, the students fulfilled many tasks, such as:

 

  • Recognize the types of photovoltaic cells: polycrystalline and amorphous monocrystaline
  • Guide panels according to seasonal optimal tilt
  • Measure by a multimeter voltage and intensity according to the degree of inclination
  • Bring panels in series, parallel and mixed and check their parameters
  • Know and identify the different types of controllers, their programming process and functions
  • Verify, identify and maintain batteries and inverters

 

But their stay wasn’t limited to work. The students were also fully immersed in the Spanish language, culture and way of life! They were shown around the city of Seville, visited two of the most important cities in Andalusia, Cadiz and Cordoba, and finally learnt a lot about the language in their Spanish course.

PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Konrad Strzelecki:

‘The training proceded in a good atmosphere. During the practical lessons I deepened my knowledge about the electric energy produced by photovoltaic panels. I learned to design such an installation and build one. That showed me how to create energy from something other than nonrenewable sources. I also learned how important that is in these days, when global warming accelerates due the carbon dioxide emission, even if solar panels are not cost-efficient everywhere.’

Tobisz Kawka:

‘The practice in Spain was for me a great opportunity to get to know the solar systems. Practices were held in a nice atmosphere. During the training I noticed a great organization in groups. Thanks to the training I got new experience and skills.’
