New Polysun at Intersolar Europe: Polysun 6.1 enables users to plan the optimal use of solar energy

Polysun 6.1 will be available just in time for this year's Intersolar Europe, an event where a wide range of innovative energy storage products will be launched and showcased. Polysun can be used to compare different concepts and show customers where they differ and what benefits they bring.

All in one tool

The new 6.1 version of Polysun includes enhancements to the simulation of energy storage systems as well as an improved self-consumption optimization. In the new energy policy scenario, the all in one tool slogan takes on a key meaning: in the Polysun simulation environment, PV is directly linked to the thermal components. The new software version supports inverter-controlled heat pumps, the electrical and thermal storage of excess energy as well as a system-oriented efficiency improvement. As a new feature, the 6.1 version also allows the input of measurement data from smart-meters as well as the generation of synthetic self-consumption profiles.

The following elements can all interact with one another within the same simulation:
Production of PV electricity
Inverters
Heat pumps (with air or soil acting as a heat reservoir)
Ice storage systems
Stratified thermal storage tanks
Electricity storage in rechargeable batteries
Solar collectors
Heat exchangers

Freely programmable controllers make it possible to reproduce any number of concepts with interacting elements within them. The expanded template database provides appropriate ready-made examples which may be selected through a wizard.
