Module layout tool - input or modify layout data form Excel table


Recommended Posts

To anyone who concerns:

I'm working on 10 MW (12,5 MWp) PV plant, and have a problem that the investor requested to rearrangement of all MPPTs not as originally designed as two strings per table on one MPPT (bottom and upper row), but to connect upper rows of different tables on one row and lower rows of different tables in another. He also requests a model of PVP in PVSyst using Module layout and detailed losses. 
I already made a model with the layout of the old connections and now I have to rearrange it. As you probably know with such PVPs Module layout tool is quite slow and it is time-consuming to rearrange connections.
1. Is there any way to make this faster? Another tool? Input from excel?
2. I have an idea to automatically, with a comparison table from xls (vba+xls reconfiguration table), reconfigure the version file from the projects folder, but I can not find the string to the inverter to mppt connection in PVSyst project files. I already extracted string-table connections, but missed a string to mppt. Please support me to establish this connection and make program reconnection. Of course, I shall do it at my risk and responsibility.

3. Do you have detailed description and locations of PVSyst files. A lot of things are clear, but for example previously mentioned connection I couldn't find.

My suggestion is that you provide a layout import tool from XLS for this module.

Thank you in advance.
Best regards,

Within PVsyst, the fastest way is the "Auto attribution" tool. Here are two options that you can try and consider:

This first option allows you to put strings from a same MPPT on the same table:

The second option allows you to put strings from a same MPPT on different tables and on the same "height":
