SmartCalc.CTM is now free.SmartCalc.CTM is now a free software tool and the full version is now available for download. All restriction from the previous demo version have been lifted and module designs, component specifications and material properties can now be accessed. Download are possible via the “Software” section of the website. Together with the release of the free version of SmartCalc.CTM we present the next generation of PV module simulation: SmartCalc.
SmartCalc.Module released.SmartCalc.Module has been released as the successor of SmartCalc.CTM and targets the more advanced user and his requirements for in-depth analysis and fast result generation. The tool comes with a completely reworked user interface, the implementation of more module design and component options and novel features: SmartCalc.Module is ready for the future: The new software design will improve the development process and many new releases will follow in the next few months: Virtual Energy Rating, support of conductive backsheets, module yield prediction, PAN-file export and many other novel features are already in the pipeline.
A new Version of SmartCalc.CTM has just been released. Added Features: Additionally, most of the phsicyal models have been reworked: More accurate and faster optical calculations, Improved consideration of edge effects for backsheet reflection, Reworked models for IBC solar cell interconnection, Extended integration of the temperature model. We have also added the possibility for encrypted material files. Suppliers can now provide their customers with input data for SmartCalc.CTM: simple and confidential.

The demo version of SmartCalc.CTM with selected features and materials is now avaliable. With the SmartCalc.CTM Demo Version gains and losses for common PV modules can be analyzed. Materials and parameters can be edited in the graphical user interface or loaded from a library. In this way it is possible to optimize modules, single components or design parameters. SmartCalc.CTM has been developed for R&D purposes as well as a tool for end-users in product development.
A free demo version of SmartCalc.CTM with selected features and materials will soon be released. With the tool you will be able to calculate cell-to-module losses for standard modules with custom design and cell layouts using a variety of materials. The download will be available here on our website as soon as it is released.
