  1. Hi abra, Check that the fields properties are consistent (click on the button "Field properties"). If your PV table is set too large, it may not fit in your area.
  2. Hi Thet, There are 2 ways for create/modify grounds in PVsyst: Using the ground editor tool: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/index.html?ground_objects.htm Importing a CSV file with XYZ coordinates describing the ground: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/index.html?csv_ground_data.htm After importing or creating your ground, you can use the zone tool to stake out your PV tables following the ground: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/index.html?zones_of_tables.htm You will find a number of tutorial videos on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/PVsystTutos), but unfortunately there are no videos for these features yet.
  3. Hi Ronals, You're right, the main area considered by PVsyst is the active area, a good solution to find the land surface is to draw a zone on your PV plant, this will give you the desired area:
  4. Hello @Tin, Here the documentation about CSV ground files: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/index.html?csv_ground_data.htm.
  5. Hi @ricardsaa This behavior is really strange, are you using the latest version of PVsyst (7.2.18)? Be careful also to respect the scales in meters. If you accidentally import your ground image at the wrong scale and you create a zone smaller than a PV table, no table will be created. If you continue to encounter difficulties, you can send us your project at support@pvsyst.com, and we can analyze the problem in more detail together.
  6. Hi @taahxr, This is not the recommended approach in PVsyst, as it drastically reduces software performance. Unfortunately, this is currently not possible in PVsyst. As suggested by @dtarin, you can model your PV tables directly in PVsyst, or edit them in Sketchup.
  7. Hi batu1234, It's hard to tell on just a screenshot. A first check is to verfiy that your PV tables do not interfere with the buildings. You can try to run a "check sceene validity": Otherwise, to better understand where your problem lies, I suggest you send us an email to support@pvsyst.com with the export of your project attached. We will be able to provide you with a more detailed answer.
  8. Thanks @dtarin, that's correct. Just an screenshot below to illustrate your solution:
  9. Hi Kassita, All web services used internally by PVsyst are listed here:
  10. Hello Debbie, This is not so simple. I tried to find a scenario: In the "List and management of objects" dialog (CTRL+G), select all your imported tables and change the origin to "Rectangle center": Select "East" oriented tables, and set the Azimut to -90°, and the tilt to the desired value (for example 30°): Select "West" oriented tables, and set the Azimut to 90°, and the tilt to the desired value (for example 30°): This will give you something that looks like dome structures:
  11. Hi Julmou, This is because you're using the trial version of PVsyst. Regards,
  12. Hi, Glad you found the solution to your problem. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to consult our online help (https://www.pvsyst.com/help) or contact us by email at support@pvsyst.com.
  13. Hi Krunal, Since PVsyst is not CAD software, the tools to design and edit surfaces are limited. You can for example use the "Portion of Cylinder" tool to create a curved roof, but not sure if this suits your needs: For more complex surfaces, the best solution is to use external CAD software such as Sketchup, and import the model with a DAE or 3DS file. After that you can easily place your PV tables on the top of your roof using the auto elevation tool.
  14. Hi Jacob, Some variants can take a long time to load if they are complex and/or if they contain a big 3D scene. If you want to check if something is wrong in your project, please contact us at support@pvsyst.com with attached the exported zip file of your project.
