The PVsyst development team is pleased to announce the availability of PVsyst 7.2.4 is an energy modelling tool that helps in analyzing how much solar energy can be harvested into an electrical energy from a particular site or location.
New features: - Meteo: new tool to generate TMY files based on multiple years of hourly time series. The method used can be chosen between: ISO norm, Sandia method or NREL TMY2/3 method. Improvements: - Database update - Shadings, vertical axis trackers: possibility of defining a common axis in the global scene (for floating systems). Fixed too restrictive conditions for Backtracking and Bifacial. Now they are extendable through Advanced parameters. Corrections: - Module layout: fixed a crash with centre-spaced trackers - Results: fixed display of 13th month in monthly results tables - Report: fixed printing of Pumping projects report - PV components: corrected bug that could cause large temperature losses when aging was considered - Simulation: fixed irradiance calculation for concentrating systems with shadings not defined - Simulation: corrected calculation of reactive power in presence of self-consumption - Simulation: corrected warnings about energy imbalance in case of grid limitation and self-consumption - Batch mode: fixed crash when using batch mode with variants containing carbon balance calculation - Meteo: fixed an error that occurs on 32 bits platforms - NSRDB file import: elevation missing issue corrected - Shadings: fixed a crash when importing certain 3DS files.
PVsystis the solar industry's preferred software simulation tool for bankability analyses and acceptance testing. This incumbent status is both a function of the platform's capabilities and stakeholder confidence in its results. Accurate energy modeling is essential to photovoltaic system financial models, capacity tests, and performance reports. However, accuracy is not innate to a specific software, but rather is a function of how that software is used. In this context, confidence is earned over time via repetition, experience, and accrued knowledge.
From the perspective of a power user, PVsyst is uniquely capable of providing a granular analysis of irradiance losses, array losses, and system losses. The granularity and control in PVsyst allows users to account for, among other things, module quality losses; string mismatch losses; soiling losses (including snow); ohmic wiring losses in the DC collection system; inverter losses; transformer losses; and auxiliary losses. The software is also unique in its ability to simulate system degradation and aging effects, which are essential for understanding energy production and economic performance over time.
PVsyst includes a large weather database and allows users to import meteorological data from other sources. The solar simulation platform also supports probabilistic assessments such as P50 and P90 analysis, which are statistical approaches used to increase confidence in the predicted solar resource and resulting energy yield.
In late May 2020, PVsyst released Version 7.0, which supports 64-bit processors. This release enables larger project capacities, more complex shading analyses, bifacial system modeling, and more advanced economic evaluations. While these increasingly powerful capabilities make PVsyst an ideal tool for engineers, the most powerful software tool is not necessarily the best tool for all users

The industry's relatively long history with PVsystis one of the primary reasons that the solar project investment community has largely standardized around PVsyst energy models. In 1992, André Mermoud, a PhD physicist from the University of Geneva, began developing Windows-based PV simulation software. Mermoud rewrote PVsyst in its entirety in 1999, enabling graphical interface capabilities. For more than 20 years, the developers behind PVsyst have supported U.S.-based project sites and provided periodic software and database updates.
Product:PVsyst Version:7.2.4 (Build 21894) Professional Supported Architectures:x64 Language:english System Requirements:PC * Size:247.6 mb
Required computer configuration
Operating System: - All Windows client versions currently supported by Microsoft: Windows 8, Windows 10 (32-bit or 64-bit) - Up-to-date Windows 7 systems - Other OS may support PVsyst installation and execution but no guarantee can be provided. This effectively depends on many parameters....
OS not supported: - Windows servers, Application servers (Citrix, ZenDesktop, ZenApp,...)
Other requirements: - At least 1 GB of RAM - At least 1 GB of free hard drive space - Minimal screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels - .NET 4.8 framework (for Meteonorm) - Graphics card supporting OpenGL 2.0 or higher - PVsyst workspace does not support shared or remotely synced drives / folders (including OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc...). Files and workspaces can be synced as a separate task, once PVsyst has been closed.
