What is PVSyst?

PVSyst for solar design is a downloadable software that is used to estimate and optimize the power output of a solar power plant. PVSyst is an industry standard solar PV design tool. As a software, it allows the user to simulate the energy output, detailed losses, analyze near shadings, carry out financial analysis, probability reports, horizon profile and generate many more outputs that help solar designers in understanding the overall performance of a solar power plant.

Solar Designers that use PVSyst can simulate the potential performance of a power plant, after specifying information such as the location, meteo data, components to be used, arrangement, budgets and so on.

The main results to be derived from PVSyst reports are the total energy production, performance ratio, specific energy and the gains/losses involved in the simulation. The final report produced from a PVSyst simulation plays a key role in the proposal to be submitted to potential clients and investors in order to understand the bankability of the solar PV project.

PVSyst as a solar design software is extremely feature-loaded and complex. In order to deliver the training effectively, Reo has created two separate curriculums – Solar PV Plant Design and Energy Estimation with PVSyst and Advanced Understanding and Utility Scale Applications of PVSyst.

In this advanced online solar energy training program on how to use PVSyst, you learn advanced features required to simulate complex projects of 50kWp – 30MWp.

About Advanced PVSyst and Program Eligibility

The syllabus of this training program has been designed exclusively by Reo for solar professionals with an existing knowledge of PVSyst. This training program discusses solar design case studies from the start. Complex solar plants, advanced features and finer details of designing a utility scale grid connected solar project have been discussed in this training program.

To cope up with this solar design training program:

  • You must be a working professional in the solar industry or pursuing your Masters/PhD.
  • You must have an understanding of the essential functions of PVSyst i.e. losses, shadow analysis and analysing a report.
  • You must be capable of independently using PVSyst and simulating a plant.
  • Completing our online program on ‘Solar PV Design with PVSyst’ would be preferable.
  • Students pursuing their UG may contact the Support Team to understand their eligibility.

If you are new to PVSyst, we would recommend our Solar PV Design and Energy Estimation with PVSyst training program to you.

Key Takeaways Of This Solar Training

  • A detailed understanding of simulating complex and detailed MWp scale grid-connected solar projects in PVSyst
  • Learning how to simulate solar PV plants with trackers, bifacial modules and horizon profiles
  • Simulating P50/P90 reports
  • CAPEX and OPEX financial analysis
  • Simulating solar PV plant designs with grid constraints, contours and much more
  • Learn to independently simulate MWp solar projects after the training program
  • Case studies from Qatar, India, Spain, Turkey, Melbourne [Australia], Abu Dhabi [UAE] and more.

Program Structure and Learning Resources

  • After registering for the course by making an online payment, your access to the course content will be shared with you within 30 minutes.
  • You will then be able to learn from the online course videos 24*7, and have your doubts cleared on your dashboard by the instructor, for a period of 3 months. There are no Live/webinar sessions.
  • To support the videos, there are downloadable files, Excel calculators, international case studies and bonus lessons.
  • Towards the end of the program, there are progress tests, case study assessments and a detailed instructor feedback.
  • A Certificate of Completion is shared with the trainees who successfully clear our program.

Other resources in this course:

  • A free 30 day trial version of the PVSyst software will be shared with you.
  • There is an exclusive student and instructor dashboard for all your doubts and queries.
  • The program videos and instructor’s assistance will remain accessible for a limited period of 3 months from the start date of the program.
  • For the purpose of revision, you may request access to the course contents once again for a period of 7 days, anytime after the 3 month period.
  • Signing up for a Reo course gives you default lifetime access to our exclusive solar networking platform.


Thank you for a wonderful online learning experience. The classes were immensely informative and Mr. Shalve was absolutely fantastic with his patient explanations. Kudos.
