PV Simulation


Features include a precise analysis of local conditions: irradiation able and locked areas like dormers or skylights, 2D roof loads with modules. Three-dimensional view of the roof is available with dimensions of the roof plan. The software also has the ability to calculate several roofs in a project.

There is an extensive module and inverter database that includes a filter by type, specifications and manufacturers. An optimized system configuration is available for maximum energy yield calculation depending on installation location, orientation and components. Profitability can be calculated as well. The system requirements are Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista und Windows 7, each with the latest service pack. A 3D graphic card with DirectX9.0c or higher is needed and a data space of one-gigabyte minimum, though two would be recommended by ETU.
