  1. Hi there, quick clarification questions please, there is a figure in the PV Sol report for Battery System - Service Life. It's expressed in years. At what point is the batteries service considered to be over? For example in the attachment, what influences this batteries service life to be 19 years? Thank you!
  2. Hello everyone, I'd like to talk about optimising solar pv system sizes for commercial scale projects. When there is 30min interval consumption data, and information on constraints such as; available area and export limits - planning the right balance between system size and financial payback/ROI can be a slow and iterative process. The way I see optimising solar pv system sizes for commercial scale projects is by making simulation, after simulation, after simulation of different system sizes in an effort to arrive at the golden system size. I was wondering if there are any meth
  3. Have both projects been through the simulation? For example, has the system with the missing info been paired with an inverter yet, and then simulated? I think you have to configure the system, and then simulate it, to make this comparison.
  4. Hi everyone, quick question please, is it possible for a solar panel to have an IAM of 100% ? For context, the SunPower E20 327W commercial panel is listed within the PVSol database as IAM 100%. I understand this is specified by the manufacturer, though I'd like to double check this value, using information available on the web? For example, is there a specific place on the web to search for this IAM value, for double checking reasons? Thank you in advance, Jordan
  5. Hi there ? it seems like PV Sol 2020 cannot open PV Sol 2021 files. Yours, Jordan
  6. Hi Oliver, you can record screens with Powerpoint, otherwise I use FlashBack screen recorder.
  7. Hi ? I'm trying to figure out how; in the cashflow table, the Feed-in / Export Tariff value & Electricity Savings values are calculated please? I checked the help site but I don't think the page covers this; https://help.valentin-software.com/pvsol/2020/calculation/financial-analysis/ As a back-story; I'm trying to replicate the PV Sol values just out of interest and because we hand this information to customers so best to understand it completely, although I'm not the best at maths. I'm about £1.00-£15.00 out on the first year. I've attached a link to the file I'm usi

    One for the wishlist - an ability to model immersion diverters within the simulations please.

    Hello there This is just something we notice everytime we export the PV Sol presentation. It's a nice to have however not necessary. We issue the PV Sol report to all our customers and there are a few items that don't need on the report. For example; we like the Project Overview, yet we don't need the schematic diagram. We like the financial analysis, yet don't need the Electricity Cost Trend diagram. Neither the Schematic diagram or the Electricity Cost Trend figure are items that can be unticked in the Presentation Options. It would be nice to opt out of these diagrams please.

    Is it possible to change the blue sky texture to a different texture? The existing texture is great, yet just for visual reasons, might be nice to set a sunset/sunrise/cloudy/other skyboxes textures. Thanks, Jordan

    Nice! Here's another before and after, by about one month apart from eachother.
  13. Hello, just putting this question out there; how are Sun position graphs made, and can they be made from PV Sol? Is there a way of illustrating the sun path in PV Sol? The graph below is copied from the PV Sol software help page; https://help.valentin-software.com/pvsol/2020/calculation/irradiation/sun-position/ *and this one is from https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/b/sun-path-illustration-18273849.jpg
  14. Hello everyone, please share your best image/design created with PV Sol. Why? - To show and explain the best ways to create visually attractive solar systems. This is mine created with amazing PV Sol; A new-build housing development in the UK - instead of roofing with attractive expensive Cornish slate, the contractor wants to reduce their material costs by installing in-roof panels and experiment with how 'green' they could get. We were able show the contractor thier project in PV Sol by;Importing the site plan, altering the orientation and referencing elevation plans to recreate th
