Export Limit setting for (PV+Storage) system simulation


Ykulkarni

Recommended Posts

Hi forum team,

I am trying to simulate a behind the meter PV+Storage system in PVSol. I have two questions regarding my project:

1. Can you please help me understand where to add the grid export limit information? My project has a 180KW export limit granted by the distribution grid operator.

2. I want to use the BESS to maximise self-consumption. Do I need to look at "Own Power Consumption" or "Level of Self-Sufficiency" parameter in the production forecast section of the project documentation?

 

Thank you for your help!

You can set a power clipping via Options > Project Options > AC Mains > Maximum Feed-in Power Clipping

Yes, that is a first indicator.

For dimensioning it might be helpful to not only maximize self-sufficiency but also have a look into what is possible economically.
Therefore it is useful to analyse the simulation results with a focus on the size of energy shifts and power limitations i.e. is your battery system able to consume and provide as intended.

Does this help?

Kind regards
Frederik
