Plant-wide parameterization

You can use the system parameter assistant to change the parameters of connected devices at the same time and to compare them. Simply select the desired devices from a list and change the parameters that are suitable for simultaneous change. The status of the parameter changes is accessible at all times.

Satellite-based data

Sunny Portal provides the possibility to display solar irradiation values, external and cell temperatures, and wind speeds at the system's location without local sensors. These values can be used to determine the performance ratio (PR) of systems for example. Satellite-based data can be used for the sensor assignment. When using satellite-based data, the system properties must be correct. The system location and system orientation are of particular importance. The system location can be set with the aid of Google Maps.
