PV*SOL premium 2023 with new, high-quality climate data for Germany and updated configuration verification.

Whether full or excess feed-in, whether in combination with electrical appliances, battery systems and electric vehicles, or together with a heat pump or heating element: PV*SOL premium can be used to professionally design and plan all types of renewable energy supply using photovoltaics.

PV*SOL premium is a dynamic simulation program with 3D visualization and detailed shading analysis for the design of photovoltaic systems. Whether full or excess feed-in, whether in combination with electrical appliances, battery systems and electric vehicles, or together with a heat pump or heating element: PV*SOL premium can be used to professionally design and plan all types of renewable energy supply using photovoltaics.


New, high-quality climate data for Germany is provided in the program version PV*SOL premium 2023, which was released at the end of November. Based on area-wide weather data from the German Weather Service (DWD) from 1995 to 2012, Valentin Software has created a data set that includes a TMY file (TMY = typical meteorological year) for every square kilometer in Germany. These data sets are optimized for PV applications and are unique in their quality. They are available to PV*SOL customers at no additional cost.

There are also new features for checking the configuration between PV modules and inverters. Among others, PV*SOL premium 2023 has introduced a check of the maximum short-circuit current for the inverters. This value can now be saved in the database. The configuration verification ensures that the inverter's maximum short-circuit current is not exceeded.

Further innovations in PV*SOL premium 2023 are:
• Monthly consumption values can be provided with daily load profiles
• Performing two simulation steps in parallel for shaded 3D systems
• SolarAnywhere as an additional climate data provider

As in the previous versions, it is also possible in PV*SOL premium 2023 to import the electricity consumption of a heat pump system from the sister program GeoT*SOL as a load profile. This allows the degree of self-sufficiency of a building to be precisely determined for the power supply.

Stat-X® Fire Suppression for Energy Storage Systems and Battery Energy Storage Systems

Stat-X® Fire Suppression for Energy Storage Systems and Battery Energy Storage Systems

Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. Our Stat-X condensed aerosol fire extinguishing product was tested for efficacy in suppressing li-ion battery fires. It was found that the product successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program on behalf of a large energy storage company.
