Conceive the wholeness of your photovoltaic installation
- feasibility study
- 3D simulation
- electrical sizing
archelios™ suite is a unique solution allowing to work on the entirety of a photovoltaic project from the feasibility study until the complete generation of the calculation notes and documentation which are needed for its implementation. The next archelios™ treats the photovoltaic installations of all types: linked to the network, self-subsistence and isolated sites. archelios™ Suite is the most complete software solution for Photovoltaic PV design.
For the research departments, the developers and the installers, it is a significant progress allowing on one hand important productivity gains, and on the other hand to work on common data, from the technical and economic feasibility study, until the building details needed to the project engineering.
archelios™ suite is intended to the research departments and to the photovoltaic installers who conceive and maintain PV installations of all types: on roofs, plants, linked to the network and on isolated sites, in self-subsistence with or without energy storage.
archelios™ Pro is an online application for design, simulation and economic analysis of photovoltaic PV projects.
Easy to use, archelios™ Pro provides the world most precise producible calculations in the world (according to Photon International and the IJEEE newspaper), based on a 3D simulation of the project through a SketchUp plug-in. Offering a worldwide coverage of weather stations, archelios™ Pro calculates automatically the horizon lines and allows the simulation hour by hour of the near shadings. As a result, production obtained are very detailed and take into account losses due to the ageing and to the maintenance of the installation.
As a decision support tool, archelios™ Pro includes complete economic indicators of profitability taking into consideration the global investment, the maintenance and renewal of equipment costs, the bank interest rates, the amount of the potential aids, the resale of kWh price … The designer can thus find the most appropriate set-up for the best return on investment: arranging of a huge choice of equipment references, it can easily compare the conceived projects with different cabling or equipment.
Photovoltaic projects are directly accessible online and available for consultations by a sharing link on computer or on smartphone. An « offline » plug-in on Windows allows to work with the same functionalities and the same interface when the designer has no Internet access.
archelios™ Pro includes an export functionality toward archelios™ Calc to allow the electrical sizing of cables and protections and generate the needed documents to the control of the installation.
archelios™ Calc is a software for electrical sizing of PV installations linked to the public network of layout according to the different NF guides and the CEI standards.
archelios™ Calc takes into account all type of installations, from the simple installation in accommodation until the multi-inverters installations shared on a three-phase network and to the installations of more than 250 kVA. The interface of archelios™ Calc allows to visualize the synoptic of the whole installation and to access to an input zone of parameters for each selected component (generator, inverter, cable, fuse protection, etc.).
The designer is informed of the conformity state for each component by a color code. The calculation of the whole installation is made in real time. The possibility to make inputs or modifications en masse via Excel allows time gains in the design, just like the import of the project from archelios™ Pro.
