ScanTheSun free app for solar cells adjustment with shading analysis

ScanTheSun is an application for mobile ANDROID devices. The app calculates best direction and insolation of a solar panel taking into account surrounding trees, buildings or other sources of shading. It enables collector adjustment even in complicated urban surroundings.

The app is targeted to support the installation of solar cells by companies and also individual users of solar systems.


ScanTheSun allows to:
- calculate the amount of solar energy reaching the collector
- find the energy loss due to shadow casted by objects in the vicinity
- plan the collectors mounting (selection of the best part of the roof, proper panels orientation) even in a complicated urban areas
- calculate the hours of water warming or electric energy production during the day
- prepare a complex documentation of insolation and efficiency of solar installations

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
