Design Peak Power outcome


Recommended Posts



A short question.

When i design a PV-plant in the 3D mode of the premium software, where in the simulation results can i see the peak power in watts for a years simulation. So that i can see the highest load that will be put on Inverter/Fuse...

Probably on a cold&sunny time at the simulated time period.

Hi Daniel,

there are several ways to determine the maximum DC power of the PV system. Personally I think the fatest way is to go to the 'Diagram Editor' on the results page, select carpet plot and choose 'PV energy (DC)' data series. The maximum value can be easily read off the scale on the right. See the picture below:

Alternatively, you can go to the interval mode of the diagram editor, choose the corresponding data sets and plot the whole year:

When you hover over these diagrams with your mouse, you'll see the actual value in Watts.


The third option would be to export the simulation results as a csv file, open it in Excel and search for the maximum over the respective columns.


Hope that helps, kind regards,
