LU-sim is a solar energy simulation tool that has originated from our own need for special simulation capacities that we have encountered over 15 years of consulting and research, and that were not fully addressed by the standard software solutions available on the market.
LU-sim possesses many standard simulation features, such as:
Energy yield assessment, use of solar irradiation long-term time series (not just TMYs)
Detailed calculations of PV energy losses
Calculation of exceedance probabilities (P50, P90, …).
Lu-sim also makes it possible to carry out more advanced simulations for specialized or niche applications:
Complex shading scenes
Bifacial PV energy gain
Concentrating Photovoltaics (CPV)
Building integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)
Modern finance applied to PV portfolios
Assistance for the design and optimization of PV plants
PV self-consumption and self-sufficiency (for individual or collective prosumers)
High-frequency time series generation (up to one second)
Simulations in loop for Monte-Carlo analysis, multi-parameter optimization, or PV portfolios.
