Efficient 360º PV plant project design

pvDesign covers the entire design process of utility-scale solar projects while recommending optimal input values at each step of the process. pvDesign automatically populates the defined site with structures, calculates the length of the needed cables while optimizing the position of roads and power stations and sizing the interconnection facility for your project.

Define civil configuration

Choose the orientation of your roads (vertical, horizontal, with or without perimetal roads), power stations (inside or outside the dc field), and structures (rotated, with an offset or a turning angle axis).

Select the equipment

pvDesign has a vast and up-to-date catalog of mono and bifacial modules, inverters (central and string), and structures (fixed or trackers). If the equipment you are looking for is not available, upload a .pan file (for modules) or a .ond file (for inverters) to your private database in pvDesign or ask our support team to create the structure that you are looking for.

Choose the interconnection facility

Size the interconnection facility by choosing between the IEC or the IEEE standards and select your connection type. Both a switching and breaking station or a step-up substation (with single or double busbar arrangement) are available. In addition, you can take into account the power factor when sizing the PV plant. CTA

Set the Electrical Configuration

Choose the electrical standard for cable sizing you want your design to follow (either IEC NEC, or AUS), and your DC and AC voltage drop. Define everything you need for your power stations: inverters, losses, and your DC/AC ratio. Users can choose between maximum or specific capacity. In maximum capacity pvDesign will try to maximize the capacity that you can fit in the defined site, whereas in specific it will fit the exact capacity you decide (as long as the site is big enough). You can even configure your low voltage configuration and choose an electrical arrangement provided by pvDesign according to the previously set parameters.
