  1. Hello, I am contacting you with a specific problem for a project. This is a shading calculation for a project for installation of a photovoltaic power plant on the planned corridors. These corridors are lower than the surrounding buildings (the buildings are about 23 m high). According to our simulations of shading in the SKETCHUP, the shading of the panels is quite large, which is also confirmed by PV * SOL. The problem is that the actual calculation of panel shading does not enter to calculation, see the screenshot below. As I have already mentioned, the surrounding buildings in the area reach a maximum height of 23 m and the shading is therefore large, as you can see in the attached pic below: According to the result from the software, the production from PV is unusually large (with installed 111.20 kWp, it is an annual production of 101,587 kWh / year) The SOLAREDGE technology is used in the project, including optimeters, but according to our personal experience from real installations, we know that we are not even able to reach these values. I would like to ask you for advice, where I am making a mistake, that no shading is included in the calculation and why PV * SOL does not even count it? Thank you very much for your answer and I look forward to the arrival of a new contemporary 3D in November this year.

  3. Hi, Based on your recommendation, I have adjusted the values in the PVSOL.ini file more precisely: <MaxAnzModule> 10000 </MaxAnzModule> <MaxAnzPvModuleAufReihen> 7500 </MaxAnzPvModuleAufReihen> I set both values to 10,000 and I assumed that this would solve my problem with designing large PV systems, unfortunately this did not happen and now always throws an error when taking over the project data and calculating the PV * SOL shading simulation. For better clarity, I send a screenshot of the error and I ask for advice and a solution proposal. A total of 36 SOLAREDGE 120 K photovoltaic inverters are designed in the solved project and the total installed power is 5,166.6 kWp. For more accurate information, I am also sending the configuration of my computer and at the same time I want to ask if it is possible to assign more RAM to the PV * SOL in a user way. Also, I would like to ask why the software does not use CPU and GPU capacity for these complex calculations, as is customary with similar software nowadays. Configuration PC: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9700F CPU @ 3.00GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.0GHz GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB RAM: 16 GB Thank you for your answers 🙂.
  4. Question No.1 Recently, especially with the latest updates of the PV * SOL Premium software, strange things have happened to us with the shading of photovoltaic panels. In the pictures added below, it can be seen that the photovoltaic panels reach an enormous level of shading, which is unrealistic from our experience with installations. For calculations we mainly use imported 3D models from third party software in .dae format. It is possible that these errors are caused by a bad format, because there are no errors in the 3D model itself, which was compiled in SW SKETCHUP, and yet PV * SOL shows a huge shadings. Question No.2 I would also like to ask about the design limits of the program. We are currently dealing with large ground installations and come across a limit of 7,500 photovoltaic panels installed on ground structures, which limits us in cases where we want to count power plants larger than 5 MWp. This fact is very unpleasant for us, but we are very happy to use PV * SOL premium for calculations and we would not like to change it. Is there a presumption that the maximum number of installed panels will be raised in future versions? Is this value set by the program's limits or is it limited due to the user's computers? Question No.3 In the case where we try to import a simplified landscape model for ground installations into the program, it often happens that PV * SOL writes after manually creating the area for installation that there is not enough area on the model. Is the maximum size of the imported 3D model set for program, meaning within m2 or m3 (not meant in relation to the number of polygons)? Thank you for your answers
