bendesa1962 Posted June 30, 2022 Share Posted June 30, 2022 Hi all, I have a questions about the detailed losses that can be defined in PVSyst. And than special the Ohmic Losses tab. I have studied the available PV Tutorials and read several articles about it. I can't find a in detail explained version in PVSyst manual. I would like to explain my question by a real live case. See the SLD below Capacity 940,680 Watt 13 x Huawei SUN2000 KTL 60 KW 2808 x Seraphim 335 Wp Poly 156 Strings AC Side All Inverters are connected with an ACDP by NYY Cable 4C x 35mm2 N L1 L2 L3 All inverters are grounded by NYA Cable 1C x 16mm2 from inverter to grounding bus bar in the ACDP Average distance from Inverter to ACDP 15 Meter The ACDP is connected with a MDP Distance from ACDP to MDP 60 Meters NYY Cable 4 x (3 x 1 C x 300mm2) N L1 L2 L3 NYA Cable 2 x (1C x 240mm2) Grounding between ACDP and Grounding Bus Bar of the MDP DC Side 156 Strings Average string length between string and inverter 150 meter H1Z2Z2-K Solar cable 2 x (1C x 4mm2) I think that's all information we need. The question is how to adapt this info to the Ohmic Losses Tab in PV Syst First DC Side First we must make the choice between a general number for losses or a calculated number for losses. I want to define calculated number for losses. Global Wiring resistance. The number of 18.49 shows up automatically. Where does it come from? How is it calculated? After clicking Detailed Computation the following screen pops up What is meant here by String module connections / Average Length m / circuit? Is this the average String length 150 meter? Or? That is just not clear to me. What is meant here by Main box to inverter / Average Length m / circuit? Is this the length in case we use a combiner box for strings and then here define the lengths between the combiner box and the inverter? That is just not clear to me. Second AC Side If I don't activate "Uses AC circuit ohmic loss" I guess there will be no AC losses included in the simulation results, is that correct? So I activate "Uses AC circuit ohmic loss" I can make a choice per inverter or whole system. I guess for a bigger system with more than one inverter we must activate Whole system. Is that correct? If I activate "Whole system" what will be the " Length inverter to injection" In my example I guess the distance between the ACDP and the MDP ? Is that correct? If I choose for wire section 400mm2 PVSyst gives an error message "This wire section is undersized for this current, with respect to IEC standards) I do understand that that number of square mm2 is to small. But when I choose 500mm2 in the wire section PVSyst says that is ok? I don't understand that. 500 mm2 in total is not enough to connect the ACDP with the MDP What exactly is meant by wire section? Is that meant per Phase and neutral? So 500mm2 for L1 500mm2 for L2 500 mm2 for L3 and 500 mm2 for Neutral? Than the official design that I posted is heavenly oversized with 3 x 1c x 300mm2 That's 900mm2 per Phase and Neutral? In my example I guess here stops defining the detailed losses for Ohmic losses because no I do realize that I ask a lot of questions, just want to make sure I understand PVSyst. It's a great programm Many thx in advance Kind regards Ben Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
