How to Design Photovoltaic Systems with Solarius PV Software
Solarius PV is a professional software for technical design and economic analysis of any type of photovoltaic system connected to the national electricity grid (grid-connected). It is developed by ACCA, a leading company in the field of software solutions for architecture, engineering and construction.
In this article, we will show you how to use Solarius PV to design photovoltaic systems of different sizes and types, from small residential installations to large solar farms, in any location and condition. We will also explain how Solarius PV can help you evaluate the financial feasibility and profitability of your photovoltaic project, taking into account the incentives and regulations in your country.
What is Solarius PV
Solarius PV is a complete, easy to use and professional software for photovoltaic systems design. It allows you to:
Model 3D parametric objects of photovoltaic systems, starting from DXF or DWG CAD drawings or BIM models.
Calculate solar irradiation data from Meteonormâ or PVGISâ climatic databases, or import your own data from other sources or measurements.
Study the effects of shading on photovoltaic modules from a photo or directly on the solar diagram of the installation site.
Size and configure the photovoltaic system and the storage system by defining the type and number of modules, inverters, batteries and energy meters.
Generate wiring diagrams of the photovoltaic system (switch panels, cables, protection devices) automatically.
Perform financial analysis of the photovoltaic system (business plan) with cash flow, payback time, internal rate of return and net present value indicators.
Solarius PV can handle any type of photovoltaic system, such as:
Roof-mounted systems on new or existing buildings.
Ground-mounted systems or solar farms.
Integrated systems with building elements (BIPV).
Hybrid systems with wind turbines or other renewable sources.
How to use Solarius PV
To use Solarius PV, you need to follow these steps:
Select the location of your photovoltaic system and choose the climatic data source.
Draw or import the 3D model of your photovoltaic system, or use one of the predefined templates.
Analyze the shading effects on your photovoltaic modules and optimize their orientation and tilt.
Select the components of your photovoltaic system from the extensive library of modules, inverters, batteries and meters.
Check the electrical compatibility and performance of your photovoltaic system with graphs and tables.
Create the wiring diagram of your photovoltaic system automatically and edit it if needed.
Estimate the costs and revenues of your photovoltaic system with a detailed business plan.
Print or export technical reports, project drawings, bill of quantities and financial documents. aa16f39245
