Valentin Software – At the leading edge of technology with the latest generation of design software T*SOL 2017 and PV*SOL premium 2017 The Berlin-based software company Valentin Software, known for its global industry solutions, has adapted and updated its market-leading design and simulation programs T*SOL and PV*SOL in line with the current technical developments. With the new versions, system designers and operators can design solar thermal and PV systems according to the latest industry developments, simulate accurate yield calculations under the exact conditions of the location and also carry out precise economic efficiency calculations, taking subsidies into account. The company will present its innovations to the public in June at the leading international trade fair Intersolar Europe in Munich. Design of PV systems with an electric vehicle as a consumer now possible In addition to the possibility of importing floor plans, cadastral maps and screenshots from web-based satellite maps (e.g. Google Earth) directly into the 3D visualization, as introduced last year, PV*SOL premium 2017 now offers the inclusion of electric vehicles as a direct consumer of grid-connected PV systems - an addition eagerly awaited by many customers. In PV*SOL premium, users select their electric cars from the vehicles stored in the database.
