  2. Hello, 1. I would like to ask how to understand the parameter "Price of Electricity sold to Third Party"? I noticed that it does not change "Revanue or Savings" regardless of the value entered. 2. How is "Revanue or Savings" calculated? 3. How to understand the parameter "Cutoff" in "Energy Supply Account"?
  3. Hi Dennis, I have had the same problem when we work with big projects, if you adopt data in 3D Visualization, save the project and close it, once you reopen the project the problem should be fixed. kind regards Jon
  4. Dear Lenka, in PV*SOL we don't display the DST in our results. That is, when you see a time stamp saying August 13 16:00, it means that your watch would show 17:00 if you are in a region with DST (like Europe for example). That is what we do, correct. We decided not to move data in the diagram. The reason is that you would create a data gap of one hour when the time switches from winter to summer, and you would have an overlap of data in autumn, when you switch back. And additionaly the DST rules can get very complex around the globe, so we decided to provide standard winter time. But yes, if you read the diagrams, the time stamps in summer must be moved one hour forward. Kind regads, Martin
  5. Dear José, I am sorry that you are not able to work with the 3D environment anymore. Could you give some more detail, if possible? What exactly happens when you start 3D? Could you provide screenshots, please? And also, please provide the log file "PVSOLpremium.log" that you can find at C:\ProgramData\Valentin EnergieSoftware\log Thanks in advance, Martin
  6. Last week
  7. Good afternoon, I am wondering, does PV*Sol take into account summer time (or Day Saving Time)? Or does it use only the winter time throughout a year? In that case, daily power diagram in summer months should be moved one hour forward to correspond with the actual time, doesn't it? Thank you, Lenka
  8. Good afternoon, With the new version PVSOL Premium 2020, I can't use 3D design. I can't import images and then edit them. Can you tell me if it will be corrected? Bye
  9. Dear Karam, at the moment PV*SOL doesn't have this feature. It will be released with the next major version, 2021 R1. At the moment it is scheduled for beginning of November 2020. Kind regards, Martin
  10. Hello dear PVSol team, I have a question regarding the Load profile of a Smart Heater that uses surplus PV energy, how to define this load in PVSol? Best regards Karam EGO_Smart_Heater_klein.pdf
  11. Dear and, the resolution of large plans is in fact a bit tricky. At least in the project report, where the plans are rasterized before printing them into the pdf or docs file. But you can export the cable plan directly on the cable page, as pdf or svg. In this case, the vectors are not rasterized and you conserve the good quality. See this export as DIN A0 page to pdf: and zoomed in: This does not work for the cable plans at the moment, since they are generated in a different way. But you could export those as dxf (where vector information is still included), and open it in a vector graphics application, like inkscape (it is open source and very powerful, we use it a lot: https://inkscape.org/). Hope that helps, kind regards, Martin
  12. Hallo, Ich begrüsse die Möglichkeit, Vorschläge einzubringen sehr. Hier meine Vorschläge: - Voreinstellungen: Würde gerne bei den Klimadaten ein Land einstellen können (muss sonst immer von Deutschland auf Schweiz umstellen) - In der Dokumentation wäre eine Tabelle mit den monatlichen Erträgen pro Modulfläche / total aller Flächen hilfreich. Verwende das oft weiter für energietechnische Berechnungen. - Mehr verschiedene Lastprofile (allenfalls helfen hier FH oder TU weiter, bspw. HTW Berlin, etc.) wie Mehrfamilienhäuser, Gewerbebetriebe, Kindergärten, Tagesschulen, etc. Sonnige Grüsse Thomas Hostettler
  13. Hi Martin again. I would like to ask your help regarding a couple of graphic issues that i face when i try to export the report First in the cable plan i get this form. Is there a way to make it larger and make it fit better in the page? And second when i want to get the string configuration the resulting image is not very good in terms of resolution so the cable lines are not clear enough. Is there a way to either change the weight of the line or improve the resolution? I also tried printing them on A3 but still no much improvement. Thank you

(Unlike my inception of that chart ahha). Quick question if anyone is up for it please; speaking to my colleagues we suggest Eastern orientations should generate more kWh than West generation because the panels experience less heat losses as they're cooler in the morning. What else would suggest a difference in generation between the East and West orientations? I'm guessing this is a solar designer elementary question. Thank you!
  18. Hi Martin, Perfect thank you so much for that description!! Yours, Jordan Solar before and after.mp4

  20. I have downloaded and installed pvsol premium 2020. i have successfully imported a sketchup model using a DAE version. How do i re orientate the model to the correct compass setting? it is currently sitting at 180* which is close but not correct as the location is Thailand Many thanks Jimmy
  21. Hello Martin, Thanks for the reply. I am using the software Agisoft PhotoScan for photogrammetry. I was able to rotate the 3D model and successfully transfer it to PV*SOL. Thank you very much! Regarding the model size, I will try to keep it small, thanks for the tip! Best regards, Alvin
  22. Hello Martin, Thanks for the reply. I tried resizing the window manually, but the cable section just vanishes completly (see figure). The best result that I got was pushing the windows toolbar to the right (see figure). Ideally it would be nice if I could resize the section where it says "Resumo de todos os cabos". Thank you.
  23. Ich habe das ähnliche Problem mit SENEC V2.1 + Kostal Piko IQ gegenüber SENEC V3 hybrid (Duo). 9,2kWp Generatorleistung, da passt der V3 hybrid Duo mit seinen Leistungsdaten genau drauf. Auch hier werden Ertrag und Autarkie falsch berechnet. Dieser Berechnungsfehler bei der PR (und damit auch der Autarkie) müsste sich aber beim Saldieren, also am Zweirichtungszähler, wieder aufheben. Das tut er leider nicht. Obwohl wegen der DC-Zwischenkreiskopplung die Batterie nur von der Hälfte des Generators geladen werden kann und dadurch die Verluste durch Ladezyklen in dieser Variante um ca 100kWh niedriger sind, ist die Gesamtbilanz Einspeisung minus Netzbezug hier trotzdem um ca. 100kWh schlechter. Könnten hier weitere Berechnungsprobleme vorliegen, oder hat der V3 generell eine schlechtere Performance? Vielleicht hat jemand ähnliches festgestellt, die Umplanung von V2.1 auf V3 wird ja nicht gar so selten versucht werden.
  24. Hi there, I am wondering how you can define your reference edges? As you stated: I work a lot with 3D .dae models from sketchup. When I model a building in PVSOL, I have the option to define the reference edge. When I use the 3D model I don't see this option, and I am forced to wiggle about with the degrees of the orientation of the modules. Am I missing something here or can you please direct me into the right direction? Should I open a new topic for this, for possible future inquiries about this matter? Thank you in advance!
  25. Hi Alvin, the cable page was redesigned a little in recent versions, so if you can, consider updating to a newer version. If not, you could try to de-maximize the window of PV*SOL and then strech the window manually so that you can see the controls better. Kind regards, Martin
  26. Dear Alvin, I guess you will need to rotate the 3D model in another software, e.g. Blender or the like. Which photogrammetry software are you using? And aside from that, having a look at your model, I would recommend to choose only the building you are interested in, plus some surrounding buildings or trees. Try to keep the resolution of the geometries as high as possible, otherwise it will be difficult to get reliable shading simulation results. Kind regards, Martin
  27. Hallo Martin, ob alle das können weiß ich nicht, bei Fronius in der letzten Schulung wurde deutlich daruf hingewiesen, dass diese Funktion vorhanden ist und ab Werk voreingestellt ist. Falls man trotzdem Leistungsoptiierer einsetzt, soll man aber die Dynamic Peak Funktion ausstellen, weil sich die beiden Regelungen sonst stören würden. Da kommt mir gerade eine neue Frage auf: Müsste man dann in der PVSol-Simulation bei Einsatz von Leistungsoptimierern die DynamicPeak.Funktion nicht auch ausstellen oder wird das automatisch ebenfalls berücksichtigt? Schonmal super, dass PVSol, dass kann. Ich staune weiter Ich habe jetzt auch verstanden, warum man bei WR, die das können und bei Teilverschattung möglichst lange Strings bilden sollte. Ist in dem WiKipedia-Eintrag ganz gut erklärt: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_Power_Point_Tracking lG Anton
  28. Greetins. I am working on transferring 3d models from Google Earth Pro to PV*SOL using a photogrammetry software. I am able to export the .obj file and place it in the 3d ambient of PV*SOL, but the model seems to have some unusual coordinates and appears to be tilted compared to the surface of the 3d ambient. I tried tilting the model but it didn't help much. I would like to know how can I solve this problem and have the model and the 3d ambient parallel to each other. I am attaching some images of the issue. Thanks.
