PV Sol Photo Plan - Hipped roof

Recommended Posts

Hi there, just wondering what are the limits to PV Sol photo plan?

Have been trying to arrange panels on a hipped trapezoid roof aspect and haven't got very far.

Hi Jordn,

this should be possible in Photoplan.

1) Load the picture in Photoplan an set the two red lines to vertical edges of the house.

2) With the "Add geometry 3D" tool, draw a rectangular area onto the roof, so that the 3D plane (in yellow, it appears when you drag the corners of the rectangular) matches the roof

3) Then, with the "Solar Area" tool, draw a trapezoid along the edges of the roof, select the PV module (only for graphical purposes), and you see the modules placed on the roof:

4) Then choose the "Detach element" tool and draw polygons around the chimney and the power line, so that they appear in front of the PV array afterwards:

5) Then, as a result, you get this:

So this is only a fast sketch, with more accuracy you will get better results.

Hope that helps, kind regards,

Martin
