How To Unify The Database?


Recommended Posts

We need to unify all the database that we used in our company, We have PVSol premium on multiple computers and we want to use the same database from-grid tariffs in each computer, for that we can create the tariffs on a single computer and the others use them or We have create it on each computer?


Please help us with this issue.

Hi Julian Ayala,


I think the easiest way to accomplish that would be to select one computer to collect all the from-grid tariffs from the other computers and then distribute the database manually across all computers in your company.

To do that you would have to do the following:

  • Make sure that every computer in your company uses the same version of PV*SOL premium.
  • On each computer that has from-grid tariffs that you want to copy, you would create a project that contains the from-grid tariff in question, save it and open it with PV*SOL on the one "master" computer
  • After you finished this step for all the computers, you have one database on the master computer that contains all from-grid tariffs from your team
  • Now you can copy the database ("C:\ProgramData\Valentin EnergieSoftware\PVdatabase\Version4.0\PVSOL.sdf", or if you use PV*SOL older than the new version it would be database version 3.5, so "C:\ProgramData\Valentin EnergieSoftware\PVdatabase\Version3.5\PVSOL.sdf" ) to all the other computers in the same directory.
  • That way each computer has the same database.
  • CAUTION: if the users in your company have custom pv modules, inverters or the like in their database, you would overwrite them this way. If you do not want to lose those custom db entries, you would also have to include them in the projects that you copy from one computer to the other.

For the future, if you want to be able to create the tariffs on one computer and use them on the others, I think the easiest way would be to include the new tariff in a project, send it to your colleagues, let them open it and thats it.


I hope that helps. If have any further question, please do not hesitate to ask.


Kind regards,
