Plan an entire system as if using one software

The process of planning PV systems – from roof mounting to electrical system design – is now easier and more convenient than before.

Plan an entire system as if using one software
Data no longer has to be entered multiple times.

The new planning software from K2 Systems now features a direct interface with SMA Solar Technology’s inverter planning tool Sunny Design. The interconnection of mechanical and electrical planning processes for PV systems means that data no longer has to be entered multiple times and the efforts involved in the planning process are thus significantly reduced. This saves time and allows more competitive pricing of projects.

And here is how it works: First, using the K2 Base software, the user designs a suitable mounting system in five steps. In the Summary menu option, the user can then simply click the K2+ button to send the entered project data directly to the SMA Sunny Design planning tool and use this to immediately start the electrical and thermal simulation of the energy systems.

All that is required to use this new feature is a user account for both K2 Base and a Sunny Design. (mfo)
