Dear PV*SOL users,

to collect and centralize the feature requests for PV*SOL, we have created this topic.

Here you can post your ideas for missing features, usability improvements or other suggestions.

It would be great if the software could generate suggestions about cables like type, diameter etc. Also, options like rotatable MPPT, a tool that could compare different scenarios for angles and information about voltage drops.

The option to enlarge the "Define Module Areas" window, so one doesn't have to scroll every time once beyond 9 strings.
EDIT: Also, it would make it easier if the list could be sorted A->Z / 1->9. (Especially later when setting up the inverter config)

Honestly I think it would be a good ide to remake the PV*SOL program. New Engine, HUD and interface.
Maybe it could also be an idea to go into a cooperation with a CAD software maker to integrate there drawing engine/tool into PVSOL. Maybe something like SketchUP because it's fairly easy.

Also large project takes a fair amount of ressources when calculating and it's nonsense that the program do not utilize more that one CPU core.

I use PV*SOL Premium for my everyday job. 


I have a profession degree in CAD, 3D drawing and product/process optimization, and I really think this would take PV*SOL to a entirely new height. 
The calculations and options in the program is great, so I think you have something really good. It just seems outdated.

Hi Jesper,

I'm just an everyday user like yourself but I've been hanging out on this forum for a long time and have read a lot of posts by the developers.

As I understand it they are in fact working on a complete re-design of the software, although it will probably take until the end of 2022 or later until we get to see it. And yeah, we all (including the developers) think that the software is outdated (just the fact that it's 32-bit says a lot) and that's because the core of the program was written in 1999 (I think).

Even though it is outdated I still think that it's the best and most accurate software for most PV simulations. Some other softwares are more user friendly, look nicer or have fewer limitations when it comes to size and such things but when all things are considered together I still chose to buy this even though I've tried almost a dozen other softwares.
