New: PV-Teach 3.0PV-Teach is a program to show the current/voltage curves of solar modules, solar strings and of whole solar generators. A special feature is the possibility to use different equivalent circuit models and to compare their properties. Moreover mismatching losses, which arise when connecting different or shaded solar modules, can be simulated and displayed.
Update 05/21/2014: Problem with international characters has been fixed.
Property-Return-Calculator 1.0This program serves to calculate simply and comprehensible the return on investment of a photovoltaic plant. For this the property return is determined, where the investment in a solar plant is compared with a money investment in a bank.
Sun Path Diagram 1.0This program serves to show the Sun pathes in different months of the year. With this you can estimate if shadowing takes place for a planned site of a solar plant .
