What is PVSyst?

PVSyst is a downloadable solar design software that is used to estimate and optimize the power output of a solar power plant. PVSyst is an industrial standard as a solar 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 one in understanding the overall performance of a solar power plant.

Users of 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 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.

Key Program Takeaways

  • A complete walkthrough of the PVSyst software
  • The science, mathematics & art behind solar design
  • The complete understating of a client’s requirements to prepare a PVSyst design
  • Performing a virtual and in-person site assessment
  • Learn to calculate all input values such as azimuth, tilt, losses, etc. and analyze the output
  • Detailed knowledge of losses, 3D modeling and near shading analysis
  • Analysing a PVSyst report and creating a professional sales proposal
  • Being able to independently perform grid-connected PVSyst simulations of up to 1-2 MW
  • Case studies from Dubai [UAE], Bangalore [India], Karsfeld [Germany] and Manchester [UK]

Program Structure and Learning Resources

  • After registering for the course by making an online payment, your access to the program will start on the 20th of January 2021.
  • From 20th January onwards, for 3 months, you will be able to learn from the online course videos 24*7, solve the assessments, and benefit from the instructor’s assistance on the private group. 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 mentor and peer interaction 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.
