RatedPower has launched a new interface for pvDesign featuring financial tools and comparison abilities to help users choose the optimal project design.
The new Financial Tool allows the user to create price templates that will be saved privately and used by the algorithm to automatically calculate the CAPEX and LCOE of all the projects simulated in pvDesign.
The Comparison Tool allows pvDesign’s clients to easily compare designs side by side with the desired parameters and sort them according to their preferences.
Planning and estimating costs properly is imperative in any engineering project. What’s more, modifications on a project may be cheap when requested early in the design process and very expensive when requested in the final stages of approval and construction.
Additionally, flexibility and rapidness are key to reducing plant design and construction costs and thus being able to use a software that automates and optimizes the design of solar plants from the initial feasibility analysis to a complete evaluation might be just the key to a successful project.
RatedPower aims to become the one tool to automate and optimize the design of solar plants from the initial feasibility analysis to a complete evaluation including topography, civil and electrical layout, meteorological analysis, energy yield, financial assessment and documentation generation.
The financial and comparison tools have been frequently demanded by solar experts in order to be able to quickly estimate the specific price or cost per Watt peak and the cost per MW/h of a given design.
