PVcase released version 1.33 to coincide with the update to PVsyst 7.0. The joint tracker-focused integration between PVcase’s ever-evolving utility-scale solar design tool and PVsyst — software used to predict the performance of different PV system configurations — is now immediately available to all users who have updated to the latest versions of both.
Single-axis tracker designs done with PVcase within AutoCAD can now be transferred directly to PVsyst, eliminating the need to re-create the designs in PVsyst, saving hours or days of work per design. The new file format (.pvc) co-developed by PVcase and PVsyst enables users to not only transfer detailed tracker layout designs but also all of the specific parameters of the single-axis trackers like turning angle.
“We are determined to constantly improve the way utility-scale PV power plants are designed,” said David Trainavicius, CEO of PVcase. “This integration between PVcase and PVsyst is yet another effort to ensure more seamless workflow for solar design engineers. It will allow our users to work quicker and more efficiently, resulting in better turnaround times when producing single-axis tracker designs.”
