HELIOS 3D supports phase oriented teamwork with its SQL data base framework (Picture 1).
Evaluation of suitable terrains for solar plants becomes an essential part in solar project development. Therefore a system that can do this, is of high value. HELIOS 3D has functions to qualify land with ease, that you normally would not consider to be in the useable range. With a few mouse clicks all essential values are checked.
The core functionality of HELIOS 3D is, to place the racks without shadows casted on them on any suitable terrain. This is done in connection with the knowledge about the geographical position of the project area and a reference date and time, that defines the actual angle of the sun.
After finishing the layout of a PV plant, the next important and time consuming task ist the electrical design. This is a very complex task and needs a sophisticated and intelligent integrated software solution to be applicable for the individual layouts. Each company or even the developer has kind of its own scheme to design an electric layout, so the software should be as flexible as possible.
To finish a project or to get intermediate information, most of the available information can be collected for a Project Overview. It contains bill of material information, summed up and also split up for the single fields in connection with statistical data to give also specific information.
