Alongside the popular solar power case, the new solar power
laboratory is a further impressive system from Christiani for teaching
photovoltaics. The solar power laboratory makes it possible to learn about and
comprehend both off-grid and on-grid technology by applications found in
An experienced and professional educator has developed the
components and the experimental set-ups together with solar engineering
specialists. The comprehensive description provided for the experiments rounds
of the overall didactic concept in an ideal manner. The technology used in the
solar power laboratory has been matched to an optimum to the needs of practical
applications in domestic engineering.
The solar power laboratory - for the photovoltaic professionals of
today and tomorrow!
The components of the stand-alone technology can be combined with the other
components of the Christiani Solar Power Laboratory or integrated into existing
specialist rooms equipped with perforated grid walls.
The complete Christiani Solar Power Laboratory consists of a stable
laboratory table with energy channel and perforated grid wall, as well as the
components of the stand-alone system technology and the grid parallel
technology, which can be safely stored in a roll container.
By working with the individual module bricks, the students can immediately
understand the circuits commonly used in photovoltaics. The module stones are
made of stable, unbreakable material and have exchangeable side, front and rear
surfaces. In addition, the back wall is made of transparent material. This makes
the technology "transparent" for the trainee.
The module stones are provided with standardized and embossed symbols. All
connections are led to 4 mm touch-proof safety sockets on the front side. There
are no electrically conductive connections from the installed practice equipment
to the outside. The adhesive system on the rear side allows theory lessons on a
steel wall panel and practical laboratory lessons on a laboratory grid wall
without any problems. In addition to the adhesive system, the module blocks are
equipped with four spring-loaded guide pins for stabilisation on the laboratory
grid wall. Due to the possibility to attach the modules to steel boards, circuit
diagrams can be visually clarified and better understood.
The modules of the Solar Power Laboratory comply with the latest state of the
art in photovoltaic technology and the regulations that have been in force since
2008 (VDE 0100 Part 712).
Stand-alone system technology and grid parallel
Stand-alone system technology refers to a self-contained photovoltaic system.
The electricity generated by the photovoltaic system is used on site or stored
In addition to the components of stand-alone system technology, there are
also components of parallel network technology. Grid-parallel technology refers
to a photovoltaic system connected to the (public) grid. The electricity
generated by the photovoltaic system is fed into the grid.
Possible uses for the Christiani solar power
Entire classrooms can be fully equipped with laboratory
workplaces. Christiani supplies the fitments required to fully equip such
specialist rooms. We will gladly help you from the concept through to its
realisation. The solar power laboratory can also be installed as single
workplace for learning purposes both in companies as well as in educational
