Next step in PV system design – tools with cross-manufacturer input

View Webinar Video

Ensuring proper system design is key to installation success for rooftop solar PV project developers. K2 Systems says it streamlines the workflow with a new free software planning tool, automizing the planning process with information of different manufacturers in “cloud-based synchronicity”. In this pv magazine webinar, we explore the new feature.

Stefan Köhl

Stefan Köhl is the Business Development Manager at K2 Systems responsible for developing markets in Africa, and digital solutions. He is involved in the development and expansion of the planning tool K2 Base and the K2 App. Stefan holds a BA in Business Administration and Economics from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

Gal Roter

Gal Roter is a Product Manager at SolarEdge Technologies specializing in the development and marketing of software for PV design, energy simulation, and ROI analysis. Gal is responsible for both internal and external training for new PV software launched by the company. Before joining SolarEdge, Gal acted as both a software developer and a product manager at SAP where he was responsible for critical aspects the company’s cloud development platform and tools. Gal holds a BA in Computer Science from The Interdisciplinary Center.

Ensuring proper system design is key to installation success for rooftop solar PV project developers. Historically, PV system designers would have to climb onto roofs, take measurements, run shade analysis and then put together the ideal project based on these inputs. These processes are time and labor intensive, creating challenges for developers.

Today, the solar industry is becoming more sophisticated in project planning with digitalization – although the process is typically spread across several digital platforms. Installers first do an electrical design of systems, and then put outputs in programs to design the mechanical layout, including ballast dimensioning.  K2 says it brings together the workflow with a new free software planning tool, automizing the planning process with information of different manufacturers in “cloud-based synchronicity”. Join the next pv magazine webinar, powered by K2 Systems, to learn about the latest trends in digital system design and for a demonstration of the latest free digital tool that saves time and improves efficiencies in project planning.

Webinar Content:

  • New technology developments and trends that ease project planning, save time, and reduce errors
  • Demonstration of the new feature K2+ in the design planning tool Base, which brings together a system from mounting structure to string design and yield prognosis, in one platform
  • Live demonstration of a design calculation for a commercial and residential project using K2 Systems’ mounting systems and SolarEdge’s inverter

Be part of the conversation!

Questions may be submitted beforehand and during the webinar through a chat window for a fully engaging and interactive experience.
