SunDAT: PV Design Software
AUTOMATED LAYOUT DESIGN
SunDAT’s patented system for determining layout maximizes use of space while automatically placing roads or aisles in your designs. Handle the most complex boundaries and obstructions with ease.
Calculate production, yield and performance ratio (PR) estimates within SunDAT and compare different system designs to see which one is the most economically optimal. You can do real-time energy modeling, publish project-specific reports, and export your 8760 data for further economic analysis.
SunDAT is specially adept at dealing with rugged topography. You can identify areas that are beyond a certain slope tolerance, or flag areas in your layout that will need to be graded or avoided entirely. Based on topography analysis, SunDAT also automatically determines row spacing on fixed tilt systems to avoid shading.
SunDAT software is a 3D solar PV design tool primarily for utility-scale and commercial and industrial (C&I) projects. Whether you are designing a C&I rooftop system, large canopy structures, utility-scale PV systems, or even a residential project, SunDAT can help you automate workflows and increase the efficiency of your design process. SunDAT software is engineered to handle large, utility-scale design projects. Aside from designs that will optimize Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR), and engineer enhanced yields on rough terrain, SunDAT is specially adapted for solar trackers, bifacial modules and other solar technologies that boost energy production.
