  1. Hello, I just started using PV*SOL Premium 2020, and I'm having trouble adding new inverters for my setup. I'd like to add the Victron SmartSolar MPPT 250/100 charger controller and the Victron Quattro 15 kVA inverter/charger, but I don't quite understand how to add two different modules to the system. I'm also having trouble filling some of the required information (perhaps Victron and PVSOL use different terms for certain information). Is it possible to choose what is the primary function of an inverter module: e.g. one being the actual solar inverter and the other being an inverter charger connected to the batteries and the consumption? Kind regards, Paul B.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm wondering if it is possible to output a pdf or xml file from PVSol showing a top-down view of the roof with the solar array and any roof obstructions that were added to the roof? Thanks!
  3. Good Morning PVSol team, For our new projects, we are looking to use Heckert NeMo 2.0 60M 325Wp (Data sheet attached ). Unfortunately, In PVSol PV Module Database currently files till Heckert NeMo 2.0 60M 315 Wp are available. Is it possible to create solar module file from datasheet ? I know low lights performance and IV characteristics curves are missing in the data sheet. Should I contact the PV manufacturer for this data and files ? Is it possible for you to provide me the solar module files or update the database? Hope to hear from you soon. Many thanks and have a nice day 2019_06_Datenblatt_NeMo_2-0_60_M_315-325_vorlage.pdf
  4. Hi I am trying to configure 2 roof areas together using 2 inverters. Roof area 1 - 13 strings of 18 panels (65kw) East Roof area 2 - 7 strings of 18 panels (35kw) West 50 kW inverter, 4 x MPPT with three inputs per MPPT I want to assign 10 x strings of Roof area 1 to Inverter 1 and 3 strings of Roof area 1 + 7 strings of Roof area 2 to inverter 2. I configure the two roof areas together and then select 2 inverters, but they are not shown separately. It seems that the two inverters are also configured together (if i add 2 x strings to MPPT1, it seems to be added to MPPT2 as well). This is fine if I want to assign even number of strings per inverter, but in this case it is not possible. There does not seem to be a way to show the inverters separately (as what is possible if it is a single roof area). Is this possible at all - it is a real world problem? Thank you
  5. Here is our new tutorial on how to connect multiple module areas on one MPP tracker (polystring) and how to use power optimizers in the new PV*SOL premium 2018. Also refer to this thread: We hope it helps! Kind regards, Martin
  6. Program options and presentation This tutorial gives an overview on how to customize PV*SOL premium for your needs. The program options and the setup of the presentation will be explained. After starting PV*SOL premium you can enter the options via the menu bar in the upper left corner. "User Data" and "Program Options" will both open the options menu on different sections. "Reset" restores either the default options from the installation or an user defined reset point. After clicking "User Data" the options dialog opens to the section where you can indicate your company information. These will be added to the final presentation. Your logo can be loaded in bmp, gif, jpg and jpeg format. Save as default to easily restore your input anytime you want. This applies to all the configurations made in the options menu. The “Extended” section lets you choose the default directory for your projects. You can also set the unit system your project is based on. For the currency, the decimal and the thousands delimiter PV*SOL uses your system settings. Follow the link to change them. It is highly recommended to leave the four boxes below checked to keep your software up to date and get help when problems occur. In the Reset section you can restore all options and databases to delivery status. User-created data will be lost! The Project Options are specific for your current project. For every new project they will be reset to the installation default or, if created, the user default. All the sections are also linked in the corresponding steps of the simulation process. In AC Mains you can adjust the grid properties to your local conditions. The feed-in power clipping and the saved emissions may vary for every project. The saving of 600 g/kWh is a typical value for Germany. In the Simulation section you can define the losses you want to include in the simulation process. Premium users can decide if they want to use the shading calculated from the 3D modeling. The irradiance can be simulated with one-minute values that include a synthesized cloudiness. In this case the simulation process will take longer, but is more accurate. For a precise analysis of your system you might want to have a more detailed look at the radiation distribution. You can do this for the entire system or certain module areas. The losses for the PV system can be entered globally or for every module area individually. The albedo and soiling losses can be entered for the entire year or for each month. Typical albedo values of different surfaces can be found in the PV*SOL help. Soiling losses depend heavily on the location of your system. Dry areas with flat tilt angles may suffer from higher losses. In the Configuration Limits section you can define the electrical limits of the suggested configurations for your system. The sizing factor can be changed manually or be calculated based on your systems specifications. Of course you can always use your own configuration. In this case you will receive a warning message if the sizing exceeds the tolerances but you will still be able to simulate. The unbalanced load should match the requirements of your local grid. You can choose wether you want to include it in your simulation. The same applies for the max. system voltage. In the automatic configuration section you can make some adjustments on how PV*SOL will configure your solar system. Choose how many configurations will be shown on one page and if the previously set tolerance areas should be included. In case your inverter has more than one MPP tracker you should determine how those will be integrated. You cannot have more than two different types of inverters in the configuration. The View Presentation section lets you configure the presentation to your own needs. Not included elements will not be shown. You can also leave out entire sections like the financial analysis if you just want to have a technical overview. There is also an option to export the presentation in a big variety of additional languages. If not selected, the program language is chosen. The resolution of the pictures and screenshots in the presentation will be scaled down to keep the data size moderate. If you need them in higher resolution or in a bigger format just check the boxes at the bottom. In simulation results section you can decide how your simulated data will be saved. The simulation with hourly and minute values takes longer than with monthly values. If you save the results in the project file, the next simulation will be a lot quicker. Mind that the project file will be a lot bigger than normally. You can also choose the units and separators for the detailed export file. Depending on the number of module areas those files can be very large. The one-minute simulation generates over 500.000 values for each parameter.

  7. Hallo, kann mir jemand sagen, wie ich mit GeoT*SOL ein Lastprofil für PV*SOL generiere? Ich weiß, dass es diese Funktion gibt, finde Sie aber nicht. Vielen Dank SunBeam

    Hallo, ich habe PVSOL Premium 7.0 (R1) vor ein Paar Wochen benutzt und ich soll die Verschmutzung losses editieren, aber ich habe keine Ahnung wo könnte ich das machen. Jetzt PVSol zeigt immer Verschmutzung=0 vor. Kann jemand mir helfen?. Danke Entschuldigung für die Fehlers, weil Deutsch nicht meine Muttersprache ist.
