Virtuosolar is a cutting-edge PV design software add-on for AutoCAD.
The software enables users to design utility scale and commercial Solar PV plants on 3D terrains and rooftops. Virtuosolar makes you able to build PV systems shadow-free and highest irradiance at any geographical location within a specified time frame.
The software ensures consistent project design by automatically generated solar module and mounting structure layouts, electrical string mapping and numbering, string overview reports, cable calculations, bill of materials and solar irradiance visualization.Due to its intelligent BIM functionalities and databases, the add-on is able to detect conflicts and errors.
Multiple import and export functionalities like exporting drawings to Google Earth and visualize a project within a KMZ file are included. Import images from any location with GPS coordinate inside AutoCAD. PVsyst reports from real PV module layouts cannot be more easy. With the ExportToPVsyst feature you are able to simulate bankable yields of your projects.
Easy 3D modelling of roofs with obstacles as skylights, chimneys, smoke vents etc. You don’t need to be a 3D AutoCAD expert to create your own building. 3D terrains for ground mounted system can be imported from Google Earth or created from land survey data.
Operating on AutoCAD (2015-2019), Virtuosolar gives you the flexibility to integrate your own engineering house style and standards. Virtuosolar layers can automatically match your company’s custom layer setup. Drawings can be exchanged via the standard DWG/DXF format.
Virtuosolar is the perfect tool for fast, reliable and powerful detailed drawings for project development, engineering and construction phases.
