Streamline the design of utility-scale solar PV plants to increase efficiency

pvDesign is a game-changing technology that is revolutionizing the way solar power plants are designed and engineered. By using digital technologies and heuristic calculations, it transforms traditional engineering through the optimization and automatization of processes. pvDesign runs in a secured cloud so your business data is highly safe and you can work in your favorite browser.

Plan

Smoothen the planning process

pvDesign helps you plan all the phases of your PV projects in an efficient way. Define the site where the PV plant will be located by uploading a kml/kmz file with exclusion areas, substations location, access roads, and MV cables delivery point. Choose your topography, including earthworks calculations and meteorological data from the available databases or upload your own source.

Design

Accelerate time-to-design

pvDesign covers the entire design process of utility-scale solar projects while recommending optimal input values at each step of the process. With pvDesign you can select the civil and electrical configuration, choose the PV plant equipment—module, inverter, and structure—define the interconnection facility, and determine the energy losses. Start from scratch or clone a previous design to replicate previously inputted parameters with just a click. Several weeks of work in a few minutes.
