WHAT ARE TWO TYPES OF SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS
THE TWO TYPES OF SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS ARE THERMAL SYSTEMS (DIRECT HEATING) AND PHOTOVOLTAIC (GENERATING ELECTRICITY)
WHAT ARE SOME COMMON CONFIGURATIONS OR MODULES
CONFIGURATION OF MODULES INCLUDE FRAMED,FLEXIBLE,AND ROLLED. MULTIPLE MODULES (IN PANELS OR STRINGS) ARE OFTEN MECHANICALLY INTEGRATED WITH A SUPPORTS STRUCTURE AND FOUNDATION,TRACKER AND OTHER COMPONENTS TO FORM A DIRECT CURRENT POWER PRODUCING UNIT. AND THESE ARE TERMED AN ARRAY OR PHOTOVOLTAIC ARRAY
WHAT ARE SOME KEY COMPONENTS OF A PV SYSTEM
KEY COMPONENTS ARE THE INVERTERS.DISCONNECTS,CONDUIT AND SOMETIMES AN ELECTRICAL STAORAGE DEVICE; IE BATTERIES
WHAT ARE FIREGROUND ELECTRICAL HAZARDS WITH PV SYSTEMS
ELECTRICAL SHOCK WHILE EXTINGUISHING A BUILDING FIRE IS A REALISTIC FIREGROUND HAZARD.
WHAT IS VOLTAGE
VOLTAGE IS THE ELECTROMOTIVE FORCE OR POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE, MEASURED IN VOLTS. VOLTAGE IS THE "PRESSURE" THAT PUSHES AN ELECTRICAL CHARGE THROUGH A CONDUCTOR
WHAT IS AMPERAGE OR CURRENT
AMPERAGE IS THE AMOUNT OF ELECTRICAL CHARGE FLOWING PAST A GIVEN POINT PER UNIT OF TIME, MEASURED IN AMPRERES OR AMPS. AMPERAGE IS THE MEASURE OF ELECTRICAL CURRENT FLOW.
WHAT ARE SOME VARIABLES OF PHYSIOLOGICAL IMPACT
THEY INCLUDE AMOUNT OF CURRENT FLOWING THROUGH THE BODY;LENGTH OF CONTACT TIME,TRAVEL PATH THROUGH THE BODY, AREA OF CONTACT, PRESSURE OR CONTACT,MOISTURE OF CONTACT, BODY SIZE AND SHAPE AND TYPE OF SKIN
PRIMARY HAZARDS OF A PV SYSTEM FOR EMERGENCY RESPONDERS
-TRIPPING & SLIPPING
-STRUCTURAL COLLAPSE DUE TO EXCESS WEIGHT
-FLAME SPREAD
-INHALATION EXPOSURE
-ELECTRICAL SHOCK
-BATTERY HAZARDS
WHAT ARE SOME GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WITH A PV SYSTEM
1-DAYTIME =DANGER NIGHTIME=NO HAZARD
2- INFORM THE IC THAT A PV SYSTEM IS PRESENT
3-SECURING THE MAIN ELECTRICAL DOES NOT SHUT DOWN THE PV MODULES
4- AT NIGHT APPARATUS-MOUNTED SCENE LIGHTING DOES NOT PRODUCE ENOUGH LIGHT TO GENERATE AN ELECTRICAL HAZARD IN THE PV SYSTEM
5- COVER ALL PV MODULES WITH 100% LIGHT BLOCKING MATERIALS TO STOP ELECTRICAL GENERATION
6. DO NOT BREAK, REMOVE,OR WALK ON PV MODULES AND STAY AWAY FROM MODULES,COMPONENTS AND CONDUIT
IDENTIFY THE TYPE OF SOLAR POWER SYSTEM
-SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEM
-PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM
IDENTIFY THE EXISTENCE OF A SOLAR POWER SYSTEM
-LOCATE ROOF TOP PANELS
-CLARIFY ELECTRICAL DISCONNECTS
-OBTAIN SYSTEM INFORMATION
ISOLATE AND SHUTDOWN AS MUCH OF THE SYSTEM AS POSSIBLE
-LOCK OUT AND TAG-OUT ALL ELECTRICAL DISCONNECTS
-ISOLTAE THE PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM AT THE INVERTER USING RELIABLE METHODS
