Cell to Module Analysis by Fraunhofer ISE

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.
