Valentin Software Inc. has released update (R4) of PV*SOL 7.5 Premium, is dynamic simulation pv program with 3D visualization and detailed shading analysis of photovoltaic systems with storage systems.
A real-world representation of the shading from surrounding objects is extremely important for precisely calculating yields. You’re therefore looking for a program which takes shading into account as analytically as possible? PV*SOL® premium does just that! You can visualize all roof-integrated or mounted systems - even on the ground - with up to 5,000 modules in 3D and calculate shading on the basis of 3D objects.
The user-friendly 3D menu navigation is divided into the six sections of terrain view, object view, module coverage, module mounting, module configuration and cable plan. Simply select possible shading objects and position them on the terrain or the building. PV*SOL® premium then calculates how often on average the modules are shaded by the objects and displays the result in graphical form.
Your benefit: the visualization in 3D mode provides you with detailed information on shadows cast at various times of the day and year, and consequently on likely reductions in yield.
Through the detailed analysis of the shading of individual modules, the effect of power optimization on the system yield can also be precisely visualized in PV*SOL premium.
The following new features are included:
- The maximum feed-in power clipping can now be set to 0 %.
- The maximum number of some 3D objects has been increased:
Trees on 50
Chinmeys on 50
Vents on 50
Restricted areas on 50
Parabollic antenna on 50
Walls on 50
Following fixes have been made:
- Import of horizon files was not possible in 3D.
- Error in the calculation of AC cable losses.
- Error in the calculation of interest when using annuity loan.
- Crash if files in the Temp directory already exist.
- Crash on projects with identical module surface IDs.
- Crash when loading some projects wich include a defective shadow frequency distribution
