(November 29, 2010) — Software developer doppelintegral GmbH has launched the new version 8.0.1 of their software INSEL (Integrated Simulation Environment Language) for renewable energy systems. It is designed for professionals and end customers to understand, plan, monitor and visualize renewable energy systems.

INSEL provides a meteorological database of 2,000 international locations as well as simulation parameters of all solar modules, inverters and thermal collectors that are available worldwide.

The new version includes measurement data of thin-film solar cells, in addition to that of crystalline solar modules. As the shape of the IV curves of thin-film cells has a stronger irradiance dependence  than  crystalline cells, they require more parameters for the simulation process. “With our newly developed analytical model, we have managed to reduce the failure rate of simulating thin film modules to about 0%,” says Jürgen Schumacher, founder and managing director of doppelintegral. The new model now calculates with ten parameters.
