The new program version PV*SOL premium 2024 R1 (free 30-day trial) introduces extensive new battery options. When designing grid-connected battery systems, it is now possible to define any number of battery systems, create groups and parameterize them independently of each other. DC-coupled battery systems can now also be freely assigned to the respective PV inverter, which offers a previously unrivalled degree of flexibility. Time-controlled charging and discharging can also be specifically set for each group of battery systems - particularly interesting for time-of-day variable tariffs.
There are also innovations in the load profiles. Based on the VDI 4655 guideline by the Association of German Engineers, three high-resolution load profiles are now integrated into the PV*SOL database for each of the 15 climate zones in Germany: single-family house, multi-family house and low-energy house. With these 45 high-quality new load profiles, systems can be designed even more easily and adapted more precisely to customer requirements.
In PV*SOL premium 2024, Meteonorm 8.2 updates the previous climate data period from 1996-2015 to 2001-2020. This enables PV design with the latest climate data for almost every location in the world.
Other new features in PV*SOL premium 2024 include:
• Import of OND files containing inverter specifications
• Update to Photoplan V1.2 with new display options for PV modules (half cells, dark back sheets, new textures), amongst other things
• E-car charging station with automatic phase switching
• Project preview on welcome page
All new features and improvements can be found in our release notes.
