Solar Energy: Principles and Applications
PRICE GROUP WEBINAR
Webinar Title: Solar Energy: Principles and Applications
Webinar No: R04-201W
PDH Credit: 4
Presenter: Harlan Bengtson, Ph.D., P.E.
Time: From 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET
This online engineering PDH live webinar presents the properties of electromagnetic radiation and provides basic calculations for electromagnetic radiation. It discusses several solar position parameters along with means of calculating values for them. It also touches on the major methods by which solar radiation is converted into other useable forms of energy. It presents the extraterrestrial solar radiation and illustrates how to obtain values for the average monthly rate of solar radiation striking the surface of a typical solar collector, at a specified location in the United States for a given month. It presents calculations and data retrieval methods through numerous examples.
Solar energy is radiant light and heat that travels from the sun to the earth in the form of electromagnetic radiation and is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies, such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis. It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power.
This 4 PDH online live webinar is intended primarily for chemical, environmental, mechanical and industrial engineers who are interested in learning more about solar energy.
This PE continuing education live webinar is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the different types of electromagnetic radiation and which of them are included in solar radiation
- Calculating wavelength if given frequency, and frequency if given wavelength, for specified electromagnetic radiation
- Learning about absorbance, reflectance, and transmittance as applied to a surface receiving electromagnetic radiation and to make calculations using those parameters
- Obtaining values for solar declination, solar hour angle, solar altitude angle, sunrise angle, and sunset angle, and applying them in radiation calculations
- Learning about the major methods by which solar radiation is converted into other useable forms of energy
- Obtaining an estimated value for monthly averaged extraterrestrial radiation on a horizontal surface for a specified month and latitude between 20 and 65 degrees
- Obtaining values for the average monthly rate of solar radiation striking the surface of a solar collector with one of several standard tilt angles at a specified location in the United States for a given month

Once you have decided on a webinar or multiple webinars, click on “Add to Cart”. At this point, you will need to log in to your account, or register if you don’t have one yet, to complete your purchase. (The Log in/Register links are located at the top right corner of the screen.) Following purchase, you will immediately receive two emails: one confirming your registration with a receipt of webinar purchase and the other providing you with instructions on webinar access and completion. Subsequently, you will also receive reminder emails with the same instructions 24 hours and 2 hours prior to your scheduled webinar. You can also download these instructions from your account at anytime.
We recommend that you register for any webinar ahead of time, although you can still register online up to the start time of the webinar. If you need any assistance with last minute webinar registrations, please contact us at 877-322-5800.
From the webinar access and completion instructions that you receive, you will be provided with a link to access the webinar platform from your computer to view and listen in to the webinar. Therefore, to get connected, you will need a computer with high-speed internet as well as microphone and speakers capabilities. We recommend using a headset connected to your computer for enhanced audio quality.
Alternatively, if your computer is not equipped with a microphone and speakers, you need to dial in using a phone line. From the webinar access and completion instructions, you will be also provided with a dial-in number to join the webinar and listen in. Furthermore, you will be provided with a link to download the webinar handout, or you can do directly from you account, in the event you are unable to view the webinar on your computer screen.
Regardless of the connection method used, you will have the opportunity to interact with the instructor at the appropriate times either way. We recommend that you connect to the webinar approximately 10 to 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
Following attending the webinar, you need to return to the CED Engineering website and login to your account to complete and submit your feedback form.
Following submission of your feedback form, we will email you your Certificate of Completion. You can also download your Certificate of Completion instantly, or at anytime, directly from your account. This is where all your PDH records are kept for your convenience at all times.
CED Engineering live interactive webinars are accepted for PDH or CEU credit by all State Licensing Boards (including IA, NY, OH and WI) requiring continuing professional competency, as they are prepared in compliance with the criteria of the State Licensing Boards. For additional details, please refer to your State Requirements.
Our PDH or CEU accredited webinars were developed and are being conducted by subject matter experts experienced in their field of engineering. Our webinars are designed as fully interactive live conferences allowing you the opportunity to interact with the instructor at any time during the webinar from the convenience of your home, office or anywhere by phone or computer using your microphone or instant online chat.
If you register but you cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances, we will issue a full refund if you notify us of your cancellation 24 hours in advance. If you must cancel in less than 24 hours, we will offer you a free webinar of equal value that you can attend at a date of your convenience. There is no expiration to your purchase so you don’t have to worry.
