A complete range for PV professionals
As PV professionals do not all have the same design needs, Trace Software has chosen to launch a new archelios offer in June 2020.TM PRO extended and adapted to the size of their projects and their activity (design offices, installers, developers, etc.):
- archeliosTM PRO Free: design of projects up to 36 kWp without 3D
- archeliosTM PRO Silver: design of installations up to 100 kWp
- archeliosTM PRO Gold: sizing of projects with a maximum power of 1 MWp
- archeliosTM PRO Platinum: dimensioning of unlimited complex projects
Depending on the version chosen, rapid design, computing power, precision in production simulation, 3D environment, optimization of installations or even 3D design tools are all features that provide users with a powerful tool that is unique on the market. PV software.
More calculation and modeling possibilities on the 2021 version
Among all the changes made in the 2021 version, users will be able to benefit from more possibilities for taking into account regulatory parameters, such as the limitation of injected power or production thresholds, but also for optimizing projects. large-scale solar power plants.
- Optimizations for large plants
For the designers of solar power plants, the capacity and the performance of calculation have been greatly optimized in order to allow the management of larger projects (up to 100 MWp, ie a gain of a factor of 10 compared to the previous version). In addition, the export and synchronization between SketchUp and archeliosTM PRO are faster and saving projects is now non-blocking (possibility to work while saving).
- Limitation of injected power
Users will now be able to simply meet the requirements imposed on certain projects. The taking into account of the limitation of the injected power is integrated and displayed on the reports. The resulting production losses can also be visualized.
- Production thresholds - Adaptation to tariff decree 202
The software integrates the taking into account of the evolution of tariffs by production threshold (new French tariff decree 2021 awaiting publication).
- Developments in the 3D Ma functionality
Users of the archelios versionTM PRO Platinum benefit from unlimited * use of the 3D Map module. They thus have greater flexibility in 3D modeling of the environment on projects, with the assurance of a 3D Map credit always available. In the 2021 version of archeliosTM PRO, the terrains resulting from 3D Map are modeled with a texture for a rendering as close as possible to reality, and for a realistic visualization of the environment. The designer can take into account the field parameters without displacement constraints for the most distant sites. This functionality also allows principals to project themselves with a personalized project that can make the difference when making the final decision.
* unlimited on the Platinum version only, based on standard use up to 100KM2
- Updating weather databases
The default weather databases (MétéoNorm) have been updated to incorporate more recent and reliable data. When creating the project, the software automatically suggests the most recent weather station.
- Data exportArcheliosTM PRO study report models in XLSX format (generated from the CSV report) are available to guide the designer in the representation of his installation data.
Thanks to the permanent developments made on the archelios softwareTM PRO, Trace Software and Cythelia Energy provide photovoltaic professionals with a tool that goes beyond standard PV design. The software is positioned not only as a real project management tool but also as a marketing support.
