Photovoltaic module manufacturing (ENGN8526)

This course covers current and future solar cell and PV module fabrication technologies. Students will learn about the manufacture of silicon solar cells, and specifically about engineering in the manufacturing environment. The course covers several engineering tools/methods used by engineers to improve solar cell performance and reduce solar cell cost in manufacturing, namely statistical decision making, cost modelling, regression modelling and process modelling.

 

Students who successfully complete this course will have a practical understanding of the manufacturing engineering skills/tools that engineers use to make improvements in cost and performance in a real manufacturing environment, including graphing/charting methods used in manufacturing, normal probability statistics, hypothesis testing (“Z” and “T” tests), design of experiments (“DOE”) and product cost accounting/modelling.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
