Archelios PV sizing and simulation software applications
Our PV software is a PV sizing calculator system and much more
PV software can be used to simulate PV fields' production, estimate electric production and calculate project profitability.
Using PV software is mandatory for large PV projects, but can also be very usefull for precise simulations on basic projects.
PV software can be used as PV sizing software, providing a PV sizing calculator for sizing PV system projects, and also as PV simulation software.

Specific functions can include:  Estimation of solar irradiation  Help for sizing inverters  Calculation of energy generation 
PV software bases its simulations on various input parameters:  Meteorological data  Site information : coordinates, mask, albedos (reflection coefficients) ....  Technical data of modules and inverters 
In the simulation process, PV software takes into account various type of losses:  Variation of meteorological data  Reflection angle losses  Mismatch of module characteristics  Modules aging and clogging  Losses due to temperature  Electrical losses in cables and inverters 
When choosing your PV software you should pay attention to several points :  what is the origin of meteorological data?  how are the masks taken into account (near masks and horizon masks)?  what type of losses are evaluated in the computation process (composition of DC to AC derate factor)  tools for near mask estimation (2D, 3D?)  are the simulation hypothesis clear and included in the report?
