  1. Hi, 1st option : You ignore your land and you define in the "orientation" window then "several orientation" the Tilts and Azimuth characteristics of your sub-fields. 2nd option : Design your project and go to the 3D scene: Import your terrain with topology via a CSV file Draw your areas to fill with PV module. Use "Automatic Tilt" options Fill your areas according to your needs and projects With this technique, PVsyst will automatically detect the Titls and Azimuth characteristics of your sub-arrays and will propose to automatically update the information in the "orientation" window.
  2. Hi, In "grid connected" systems we don't take into account the "untimely" absence of the grid. An option is available from "detailed losses" tab to add a system downtime factor. In your case, you should rather carry out a "stand Alone" simulation in order to calculate and size your PV system, regulator, storage according to your user load.
  3. Hi, Such an evaluation has to be performed hour-by-hour, as the energy exchanges are instantaneous. Therefore, this requires the definition of the User's needs hourly profile as input parameter. In the project's dialog, the self-consumption will be activated as soon as you define a valid user's needs profile. Now during the simulation, there are several running modes: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/self_consumption.png The self-consumption strategy with storage may have different objectives: We have the following operating modes: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/storage_selfcons_top.png https://www.pvsyst.com/help/storage_selfcons_bottom.png The charging or discharging are limited by the PMaxCharge of the charger, or the PMaxDischarge of the battery inverter. Regards,
  4. We are happy to announce that our collaborators #BrunoWittmer and #MicheleOliosi will be attending the 15th annual PVPMC (PV Performance Modeling Collaborative) conference which will take place in Salt Lake City (USA) from August 23rd to 24th 2022. https://lnkd.in/exvxdBCg They will present the following topics : - Modeling Electrical Shading Effects In PVsyst by Michele Oliosi - Updates and Improvements in the Latest PVsyst Versions by Bruno Wittmer We look forward to seeing you there
  5. Hi, No sorry, the PVsyst simulation works on an hourly steps basis. However please be aware that if you want sub-hourly results, you should avail of sub-hourly meteo data files of course.
  6. Hi, Sorry, with stand-alone systems, only one sub-array is possible. Therefore one only orientation. This is a limitation of PVsyst, that we should improve in the next months.
  7. Hi, Stand-alone systems are always organized around a battery storage: - a PV array charges the battery or directly delivers its power to the user. - the user's needs (consumption) should be well defined, with its daily profile (i.e. in hourly values). At each hour, the simulation performs a balance between the PV production (depending on the irradiance) and the user's needs. The difference should be derived in the battery, either positively (charge) or negatively (discharge). This energy balance is controlled by a controller. The role of the controller is to handle the energy flux, mainly for the protection of the battery: - When the battery is full, the PV array should be disconnected. - When the battery is empty, the user should be disconnected. Stand alone systems in PVsyst don't yet allow multiple orientations to be defined. In this case, you can simulate via Grid Connected system by putting a load profile and Storage (battery). We update the database using the requests of the manufacturers, and publish it with each new issue of PVsyst. We can't of course follow all the new products of all manufacturers in the world. We don't want to include data without the acknowledgement of the manufacturer. Nevertheless you can easily create your own components by yourself. The easiest way is to choose a similar existing device in the database, modify its parameters according to the manufacturer's datasheets, and save it under a new name, therefore creating a new file in your database. You have a tutorial for that on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PVsystTutos, page Component database
  8. Hi, The ohmic resistance of the wiring circuit induces losses ( ELoss = Rw · I² ) between the power available from the modules and the power at the terminals of the sub-array. The relevant parameter for the simulation is the Rw value, which is an equivalent resistance of the wires, as "seen" from the input of the global sub-array (i.e. the set of MPPT inputs defined in this sub-array). You should define one Rw value for each sub-array in your system. Please read : https://www.pvsyst.com/help/ohmic_loss.htm Basically, the AC wiring losses are calculated from the resistivity, i.e. the wire lenght, section and metal. During simulation, at each time step, the power loss is calculated as NWire * Rwire · I². However in practice, as a first step of the design, people often use the relative ohmic loss. This relative loss should be referred to a specified Power.

  10. Hi, Our communication languages are French and English, please rewrit your question Regards
  11. Hi, This aging option for stand alone systems is currently disabled. The calculation of the battery degradation needs to be refined. We have re-enabled this feature with the new calculation for an upcoming major release.
  12. Hi, Are you on grid connected system ? This isn't normal, did you run the simulation correctly ?
  13. Hi, The "comparisons" functionality is only available from the main PVsyst window, by clicking on the "Measured Data" tab This feature allows you to compare the PVsyst simulation to the data measured on site : A demo project is available to take control of this tool "Grid N13 Motorway Domat/Ems power plant"
  14. Hi, No, at the moment, this functionality is not yet available. Thank you for your feedback, we will pass this information on to our colleagues
  15. Hi, The "Balance Carbon" tool has been disabled for StandAlone Systems. This tool is being maintained and improved for OFF Grid Systems
  16. Indeed, we will look to shift the editing limit of posts. Thank you for your feedback
  17. Hi, You can edit your posts by clicking on the three small dots at the top right of the post. Indeed for the moment, the preview option is not available but we are raising this request in order to add it as possible Regards
  18. Hi, This component has been defined directly by the manufacturer "SMA". It is also possible that the technical data sheet is more recent and therefore slightly different from the original product.

  22. Hi, You have not used the same PV module in both versions: V 6.85: PAN file named "Canadian_CS3W_405P_1500V.PANHE.PAN", which is a custom PAN file V 7.2.12: PAN file named "Canadian_CS3W_405P_1500VHE.PAN", which is in the database.
  23. Hi, The Current/voltage of the Array is not a basic variable of the simulation, as it is not related to the energy production. We don't look at it in detail. Please send me you full project, elaborated in the V 6.86. by using "Files > Export Projects" in the main menu. NB: When you talk about differences of 3%, is it the average over the year, or "up to 3%" for some hourly values ?
  24. Dear Marco, This diagram represents the energy flows over an entire year. At the top of the diagram, you can click on the "monthly" button to view the energy balance month by month. There is no "magic formula" to find "the" right solution. It's a question of balance between the financial budget, the production but also the lack of energy. If your object is to reduce the lack of energy, you will have to oversize your system a little, in this case, you will have a loss named "battery full" Please read : https://www.pvsyst.com/help/standalone_description.htm?zoom_highlightsub=stand+alone
  25. Hi, Thank you for your feedback. The information has been forwarded the the team in order to resolve this issue
