The end-to-end software to design and engineer photovoltaic plants
pvDesign is the leading cloud-based software to automate and optimize the study, analysis, design, and engineering of photovoltaic plants in all its stages.
Speed up the design and engineering process of large-scale solar PV projects to boost teams’ efficiency, increase accuracy, and reduce the construction costs of PV plants.
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.
Features of pvDesign
- 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.
- 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.
- Boost the competitiveness of solar projects
By scanning millions of iterations, pvDesign provides the best layout results in just a few seconds. Iterate your configuration as many times as needed to achieve the optimum design while maximizing the profitability and value of solar PV plants. Compare the different results and sort out the best configuration.
