james Posted August 2, 2018 Report Share Posted August 2, 2018 I'm new to this software; any improvements to my workflow is appreciated; Questions: Can the software find the best array design to provide the greatest savings based on many variables? Some fixed inputs would be the 15minute usage profile, energy tariff rates which applies different rates based on time of day and day of week, number and type of module, and roof areas that are usable. The variables would be how to distribute the given modules to the available areas to account for their load profile, value of energy offset at different times, energy yield of the module (including shading analysis) etc. Are any subset of these features available? Is there a way for the software to work out the best tilted panel placement to minimise shading impact given a total number of panels? If there isn’t, is there a tool that at least removes the worst performing panels until there are a total of x panels? Is there a way of removing all panels that have a shading impact over x %? When creating 3D extrusions that bridge the apex of a roof; it doesn’t allow me to multiply or copy paste these objects as they are half inside the current active area and half outside into the adjacent roof. It allows me to duplicate the 3D polygon; but this then requires individually extruding each etc. As a follow up to above; is there a way to extrude a number of 3D polygons to the same height in one step? How do you allow for the soiling and panel mis-match losses? Does the software minimise these string losses when using optimisers like SolarEdge? Any help is much appreciated.
