How to update my component database ?

We update the database using the requests of the manufacturers, and publish it with each new issue of PVsyst (about every 1-2 months).

We can't of course follow all the new products of all manufacturers in the world.

Therefore, please ask your provider/manufacturer to take contact with us (support@pvsyst.com), for updating the database.

The database of PVsyst holds now (in 2021) about 19'600 PV modules and 5’800 inverters.

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.

For that, you have a tutorial on youtube , / Component database

NB: We cannot give any warranty on the database. When using a component in the reality, you are advised to always check the component's parameters with recent datasheets .

The values are normally specified by the manufacturers, but they may let some errors that we may not detect.

On the other hand, the datasheets may be modified by the manufacturers, without notice.
