Define the BESS area

Define the area where you'll place the BESS in a .kml or .kmz file along with:



  • Available areas where installing structures

  • Interconnection facility and BESS area

  • Access points and MV cables

Size your BESS

pvDesign allows you model an AC coupled battery energy storage system. It means all the storage devices and its containers are in an independent area and connected to the substation.



  • Choose the central inverter from the equipment library or upload your own .ond file the number of inverters per Power Conversion System (PCS)

  • Size the BESS container or racks

  • Set the requirement by picking between maximizing the installation of the BESS in the area or setting a specific capacity. Decide the supply cycle duration

  • Automatically get the energy the storage system will need to recharge

Get the engineering documentation for your BESS

pvDesign will output high detailed basic engineering for your hybrid PV system. The BESS technical documentation includes:



  • BESS layout, with hours of operations and containers size

  • BESS design report

  • BESS bill of material, for easy CAPEX analysis
