How to Design and Simulate Photovoltaic Systems with PV Software PV*SOL premium 2019 (R10)
If you are looking for a professional and reliable software tool to design and simulate photovoltaic systems, you should consider PV Software PV*SOL premium 2019 (R10). This software is a dynamic simulation program with 3D visualization and detailed shading analysis that can help you calculate the performance and profitability of any type of PV system, from small rooftop installations to large solar parks.
PV Software PV*SOL premium 2019 (R10) is the latest version of the industry standard for photovoltaic design programs. It has many features and benefits that make it stand out from other software tools. Here are some of them:
It allows you to visualize all common types of systems in 3D, whether roof-integrated or roof-mounted, whether on small angled roofs, large industrial halls or open spaces - with up to 7,500 mounted modules or up to 10,000 roof-parallel modules[^1^]. You can also import 3D models from other programs or use Google Maps data to create realistic scenarios.
It performs a detailed shading analysis based on 3D objects, which is essential for an accurate income calculation. You can see how the shading from surrounding buildings, trees or other obstacles affects the output of your PV system throughout the year.
It supports all types of modern PV systems, including those with appliances, battery systems and electric vehicles. You can design and simulate self-consumption, grid-connected or off-grid systems with different load profiles and tariff structures. You can also integrate performance optimizers and micro-inverters into your system.
It uses an extensive product database that includes over 21,900 PV modules, 5,500 inverters, 2,600 battery systems and many other products[^1^]. The database is updated regularly by the product manufacturers themselves, so you can always work with the latest data. You can also add your own products or edit existing ones.
It generates high-quality project reports that can be configured and edited as required. You can include technical details, economic analysis, circuit diagrams, graphics and photos in your reports. You can also export your data to Excel or PDF formats.
It calculates the economic efficiency of your system over 20 years, taking into account the current feed-in tariffs, system costs, maintenance costs and inflation rates. You can see the payback period, net present value, internal rate of return and cash flow of your investment.
