New Features in PVsyst6



  1. Meteonorm included

    1. Direct search for a location using Google Maps

    2. Full Meteonorm interpolation program for any location on earth



  3. Detailed electrical shading losses

    1. Defines the position of all modules of the system in the 3D field

    2. Computes the electrical circuit at the input of each inverter

    3. Outputs: “Irradiance shading loss” and “electrical shading loss”



  4. Improved shading calculations

    1. Direct shading calculation during the simulation (avoids interpolation uncertainties)

    2. Big plants: optimized calculation of the shading factor

    3. Plants following the terrain (Helios 3D): orientation analysis and management



  5. New simulation process

    1. Improved project management: parameter access, copy, templates

    2. New organization of the losses

    3. New losses like LID, unavailability, and light-soaking gain for CIS



  7. PV modules and model management

    1. Sandia model implementation and comparison with PVsyst model

    2. Tools for parameter optimization (low-light, I/V curve)

    3. New parameters (tolerance, IAM profile, Vmax UL)



  9. Inverters


    1. New parameters (Transfo, CEC efficiency)

    2. Multi-MPPT with asymmetric inputs

    3. Improvement of choice by manufacturer



  11. Batch model for parametric studies
