The software company Valentin Software has updated its market-leading design programs PV*SOL and PV*SOL premium. With the new versions, operators can now design their solar electric systems in even more detail and also include battery storage in the precise calculation of yields. The company will present its new programs for the first time in June at the international trade fair Intersolar Europe.
Exact Simulation with Minute Values
With the newly introduced minute simulation, users can now precisely map both self-consumption and inverter oversizing, as well as the interaction of solar power systems with battery storage. "Calculations with the usual hourly values are not always sufficient for the current requirements of network operators", explains Managing Director Dr. Gerhard Valentin. Moreover, Valentin Software has integrated a specially developed mathematical model for lithium-iron-phosphate and lithium-nickel-oxide batteries into the new programs and also includes lead-acid battery systems in the database.
New Release of T*SOL 5.5
Just in time for Intersolar Europe, Valentin Software has also updated its simulation software for solar thermal systems T*SOL to take account of the current energy saving regulations. The new version allows users to provide the necessary information required for funding programs. For this purpose, Valentin Software has expanded the preconfigured system variants by nine additional systems. These include the integration of external circulation heat exchangers and the serial connection of solar storage tanks. The comprehensive component databases have been updated in the new version.
