Aligning PV Plant and Ground Topography

Recommended Posts

For the Shade Scene- is there a way to accurately align the solar plant and the ground topography before or during import to PVsyst?

When importing the PV (from CAD) and Ground Topography (from SketchUp) separately for large PV farms- it becomes quite challenging and time-consuming to align the two manually.

Was wondering if we could align them through a GPS locator point or are there other methods for easy and accurate alignment of PV and ground topography?

Thanks in advance.

You need an image of the modules on terrain, and then import and scale the image into pvsyst. You can then visually align the modules imported from CAD and the ground topography from Sketchup to the imported image.
