The WSQ IOT based energy management system for solar will transform learner's understanding of the relationship between data interpretation and solar systems. This workshop aims to provide solar professionals with the skills of a pre-emptive maintenance through the intelligent communication with solar photovoltaic structures.

Participants will also be required to complete a self-directed e-learning.

Course Objectives

• Plan and manage energy consumption patterns by performing system information integration to analyse big data, including analysing automated tools and systems to perform troubleshooting

• Interpret data to identify energy optimisation opportunities through understanding of control models, process control algorithms and strategies behind automated systems and the interpretation of robotics and network information to schedule production and/or maintenance works in networked environments

• Apply Industry 5s approach to monitor and optimise energy consumption through IoT technology in automated plants


Participants will be issued a Statement of Attainment by SSG after fulfilling all attendance, assignment and assessment requirements

SCEM Participants will be awarded with 21 PDU Points.

(SSG Training Grant Approved Course, available for Singaporean and PR)
