Archelios is developed since 2001 by CYTHELIA. This PV solar software was at first designed for educational purposes, to teach students notions about solar radiation. It has been constantly enriched ever since. This PV solar software is ideal for evaluating solar radiation of a site, to design a photovoltaic system and calculate the energy produced and the profitability. Screen Shots
Photovoltaic simulation, 3D design, economics results
Archelios is based on scientific publications and models and has been tested by Ines (French PV institute) and photon magazine in (2011 benchmark available here: http://www.archelios.com/pv-software/photon-survey)
Archelios is accessible to non expert PV professional.
