Jordn Posted December 2, 2021 Report Share Posted December 2, 2021 Hello PVSol community & solar PV designers, You're welcome to request a spreadsheet that visualises the forecast data exported from PVSol, example results below, from me via Linkedin - just fire me a message. I have personally created it, so happy to share. It's a long time coming, I created this because I feel the PVSol diagram editor doesn't meet what I look for in a forecast illustration. Most of all, I think PVSol is missing something that explains the forecast day-to-day life of the solar PV system (without the vertical axes changing with the day too). This spreadsheet creates graphs that illustrate forecasted: energy consumption, solar generation, solar export, battery charge, battery discharge, energy curtailment. Per day, and you can click a scrollbar to scroll through the days of the year. The spreadsheet only works with PVSol exported data, either hourly and minute data. Without amending the spreadsheet (which otherwise is easy), it would work up to 3 inverters, so up to 450kWp? Minute interval datasets can reach 500MB so you'll need a good computer. Comments/Criticism to the spreadsheet welcome! No doubt something like this will be integrated into future versions of PVSol. Yours, Jordan 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
