AutoDesigner API: Energy Target with the flexibility of MaxFit (+microinverters and the Aurora sim)
over 1 year ago by Andriy Mysyk
In the past, you could run AutoDesigner API in two modes: place as many panels on the roof as possible (max fit mode) and place only the optimal set of panels that reach the desired production target (energy mode). AutoDesigner API MaxFit mode can now generate a system that recommends optimal panels that meet an energy target while leaving your sales team the flexibility to toggle panels with the customer.
Also in MaxFit mode, add an optional microinverter to put your salespeople one step closer to a completed design. Now with a fully “strung” system, the more accurate Aurora simulation (rather than PVWatts) will run even after they’ve toggled panels on and off in Sales Mode.
