Smart Module Technology From SMA and Tigo Can Now Be Planned With Sunny Design

Sunny Design, the design software for PV systems from SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA), now allows PV systems to be planned using smart module technology from Tigo Energy. System planners and installers are now able to ensure optimal and technically sound PV system configurations using TS4-R module optimizers. The number of module optimizers required for a planned PV system is specified as early as the planning phase.

“The design software provides installers with indispensable support in professional PV system planning,” said Dr. Thomas Straub, Senior Product Manager at SMA. “In terms of system design, the latest update to Sunny Design also incorporates PV systems with intelligent module optimization for shaded modules. In addition to the TS4-R module optimizers, Sunny Design includes other components offered by the solution from SMA and Tigo. These include the Tigo Cloud Connect Advanced management unit and the Tigo Gateway for system communication. System planners benefit from the fact that Sunny Design automatically selects the required functions of SMA and Tigo’s solution during the design process, based on what is most cost-effective.”
