Trainees install Solar Photovoltaic System at DHA Suffa University

Trainees undergoing training at DHA Suffa University (DSU) in the Renewable Energy System Design (RESD) trade, as part of Prime Minister’s NAVTTC Kamyab Jawan Program, installed and commissioned a 2.5 kVA Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System on the roof top of DSU’s Engineering Laboratory block.  RESD trainees interfaced the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System with a battery bank, an inverter and a charge controller, to successfully power up the Electrical Engineering Labs of DSU’s Engineering Block and shift their load to Solar energy.

This Solar Photovoltaic System (PV) System was inaugurated on 11th March 2021 by DSU’s Vice Chancellor, Engr. Prof. Dr. Muhammad Afzal Haque, and DSU’s Pro-Vice Chancellor, Brig. Prof. Dr. Ahmed Saeed Minhas.  Interacting with NAVTTC trainees, DSU’s VC and Pro-VC lauded their efforts and showed appreciation towards the successful commissioning of the Solar PV System on DSU’s roof top, which marks the culmination of NAVTTC ‘Renewable Energy System Design’ training at DSU which started in September 2020.   Along the lines of NAVTTC program’s vision to promote Entrepreneurship and to empower Pakistan’s youth with skills that are in high demand, the skill set imparted by DSU to these RESD trainees will enable them to start their own freelance work by offering consultancy services in Renewable Energy projects being installed across Pakistan, or start their own start-up companies which provide turn-key Renewable Energy solutions to address the nation’s energy needs.
