Draw the cable plan


Recommended Posts

Dear specialist,

please help me to plant/put the inverter on the plan and draw automatically the cable lines and distances from the inverter to the panel.

And will be great if I can plant also the Transformer box on the plan and automatically calculate the lenght of the cable.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Codrin,

I am sorry, I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. If you have a PV system with modules and inverters, you can just click on the page "Plans and parts list" and see the circuit diagram:


If you want to edit the cabling, you can do so on the page "Cables".

Kind regards,

Thank you Martin,

the question is:

Can I draw on a plan the position for the inverter. Can the PVSOL calculate the cable lenght taking care about the panel and the inverter position. 

Or the only chance is to insert manually on the page "Cables".

Thank you.

Hi Codrin,

As Martin I'm not sure that I understand you correctly but I'll give it a shot anyway.

As I understand it you want to place the inverter in the 3D Design and have PV*SOL calculate the cable length based on thee position of the inverter. This is not possible in PV*SOL as the buildings don't have an "inside" in 3D design.

When in 3D design - Cable plan you have to input the distance to the inverter from the "grommet" (the place in the roof where the cables will go down).




This basically only gives you the cable losses and the possibility to see cable length (including the cable length you input as distance from the grommet to the inverter)






If you want this information in the schematic you will have to input it yourself as far as I know.


Best regards
