Look at some publications of this years WCPEC-8 to learn more about the scientific background of SmartCalc.Module:
Your analysis tool for PV module optimization and technology assessment.
SmartCalc.Module is a software tool for the fast and precise analysis of loss channels in PV modules. Power losses from cell to module are calculated using published, scientific methods. They can be analyzed and the impact of changes in components, design or operation conditions can be evaluated.
SmartCalc.Module helps you optimizing current products, developing new ones or in the analysis of technology trends. Simulation reduces R&D costs, supports strategic decisions and improves product quality.
Sophisticated scientific models enable the simulation of a wide range of module designs, PV technologies and materials. An intuitive graphical user interface allows for quick and easy virtual prototyping. Module and material properties can be edited directly in the software.
Optimize your PV products and benefit from higher module power or efficiency
Reduce prototyping effort, Identify rewarding development routes and cut costs on sampling
Evaluate novel technologies and designs before prototyping is even possible and strengthen your strategic roadmap
Perform detailed analyses of gain and loss factors with precise calculation models. SmartCalc.Module is a validated tool, reviewed and verified by Fraunhofer ISE.
Calculate CTM-factors for common and new module concepts. Change materials, solar cells or properties of components and immediately see the effect on module efficiency and power.
High accuracy measurements and scientific models form the basis of the analysis. Use data provided by Fraunhofer ISE’s ModuleTEC or plug in your own measurements.
Profit from full support by Fraunhofer ISE. Gain access to more than 40 years of expertise and high precision equipment at Europe’s largest solar energy research institute.
