Calculation of the effects of photovoltaic system shading from images or photographs
Solar shading (or clinometrical) is mainly caused by the presence of obstacles relatively far from the PV system itself such as hills, mountains, houses and buildings. Of course, these effects can’t be avoided or mitigated, because it depends on the installation site, therefore, these effects must be accounted for and calculated to be able to determine the PV system’s actual energy productivity rate.
With Solarius PV, you’ll be able to calculate PV shading in an easy and quick manner from within a simple panoramic landscape photograph.
Solarius PV also also allows you to check the effects of shading projected onto the PV modules by nearby obstacles such as antennas and chimneys.
You’ll be able to graphically view shadow interferences during a period based analysis (annual, monthly, daily or hourly) and specific features makes managing optimum positioning of the solar modules very easy and efficient.
