PV Sol 2017 from Valentin Software can include electric cars in the design of a PV plant
Berlin-based Valentin Software has updated its software for designing photovoltaic plants to include new features. The new version of the PV Sol premium and PV Sol software now makes it possible to take electric cars into consideration when calculating your own consumption.
In the new version Valentin Software has integrated additional, flexible electricity tariff models. The new software enables the calculation of the P90 value as well. The P90 states that there is a 90 percent probability that the simulated average annual energy yield will be exceeded, and is a particularly important factor for investors.
In the new version the user can select their electric car from the database. They then enter their daily mileage, and PV Sol calculates how much PV energy can be used to charge the car. The software also calculates the cost per 100 kilometers, with and without the use of photovoltaics.
The new software version from Valentin Software is available since the 17th of October.
