inSun VideoTutorial

The quickest way to become familiar with the platform tools.

Chapter 1 – Creating a new project​


In this tutorial we will see how to get started in the world of inSun. Knowing how to create a new project is the first step for anyone who is starting to use this software.

Chapter 2 – Sketch Mode


The sketch tool is the fundamental command for constructing a building or for delimiting a project area. In this tutorial we will see together how to make the best use of this mode.

Chapter 3 – Creation of 3D buildings with sloped roof


The creation of buildings in 3D is an essential step for the positioning of the photovoltaic modules on the roof. In this tutorial, we will find out how to make pitched roof buildings.

Chapter 4 – Creation of 3D buildings with flat roof


The creation of buildings in 3D is an essential step for the positioning of the photovoltaic modules on the roof. In this tutorial, we will find out how to make flat roof buildings.

Chapter 5 – Obstacles placement


The positioning of the obstacles is a very important step for the purposes of a correct analysis of the shadings. In this tutorial, we will see how to correctly place shading objects within our scene.

Chapter 6 – Products and catalogs


Once the areas intended for the installation of the panels have been created, it is necessary to know how to move within the catalogs and how to use the products that are part of them. In this tutorial we will see in detail how to do it.

Chapter 7 – Placing modules on a flat roof


Knowing how to correctly position the modules on a flat roof is essential for a regular design on this type of coverage. In this tutorial, we will see exactly how to do this.

Chapter 8 – Placing modules on a sloped roof


Knowing how to correctly position the modules on a pitched roof is essential for a regular design on this type of coverage. In this tutorial, we will see exactly how to do this.

Chapter 9 – Simple electrical configuration


The electrical system configuration is a fundamental part for any type of project. In this tutorial, we will see together how to successfully complete a basic level electrical setup.

Chapter 10 – Advanced electrical configuration


The electrical system configuration is a fundamental part for any type of project. In this tutorial, we will see together how to successfully complete an advanced level electrical setup.

Chapter 11 – Summary and export documents


Once the project of the photovoltaic system is completed, we can move on to the study and export of the documents produced. In this tutorial, we will see together how to do it.

Chapter 12 – Self consumption and return on investment


In this tutorial, we will see together how to best manage the documentary part relating to self-consumption and the financial part.

Chapter 13 – Implants with storage system


In many of the photovoltaic systems that we are going to design, we will need to provide a storage system. In this tutorial, we will see together how to proceed in order to install an efficient system.

Chapter 14 – How to modify a project


Once a project has been completed, there may be a need to go and make some changes to what has been achieved. In this tutorial, we will see together how to intervene on saved projects, avoiding starting the design again.

Chapter 15 – How to use the cable ducts


Once the electrical configuration has been made, we may realize that the cable distribution has not been achieved as we would have expected. In this tutorial, we will see how to insert the cable ducts into the project, in order to make the distribution of cables suitable for the system.

inSun Faq

The first platform dedicated to the development of PV projects.

What are inSun’s new plans?

The new inSun plans are three: Basic, Pro, and Business. Additionally, there is an Enterprise plan for custom White Label development.

What does the BASIC plan include?

The BASIC plan is a light license that allows you to quickly create a 3D project using libraries from major manufacturers’ modules, and you can create custom modules. You won’t have access to electrical design features. You can create a summary with an approximate estimate of your system’s production

Can I change the plan associated with my profile?

Absolutely, you can upgrade or downgrade your profile at any time.

What happens if I exceed the Total Expected Power for my plan?

If you exceed the Total Monthly Expected Power for your plan, you will have the option to save the ongoing project. The excess power beyond your plan will be deducted from the Total Power for the following month

Can I activate the Project Collaboration mode with a team of collaborators?

Absolutely. With the PRO and BUSINESS plans, you can activate Project Collaboration mode with a team of individuals. The person who created the project will remain the sole owner.

Are multi-licenses available?

Indeed, multi-licenses for 2 to 5 users are available with a discount of up to 25% on the annual cost. Multi-licenses are available for the annual PRO and BUSINESS plans. For requests involving more than 5 users, please contact sales@insunhub.com

How can I purchase a PRO or BUSINESS plan if I am not an inSun user?

Access https://www.insun.cloud/InSun/Account/Login and register. This will activate your BASIC plan. Then, log in to your ACCOUNT, complete the PROFILE section, and fill out the BILLING section with billing information, and choose your inSun plan.

How can I purchase a PRO or BUSINESS plan if I am already an inSun user?

Log in to your ACCOUNT, complete the PROFILE section, fill out the BILLING section with billing information, and choose your inSun plan.

What are the requirements for the computer used for work?

The only requirements are a good internet connection and a computer with a graphics card that supports WebGL. You can click here to test your device: https://get.webgl.org/webgl2/

For larger projects, is it possible to perform module shading analysis and cable calculations?

The shading analysis is limited to 2000 modules for a simple reason: we perform analyses on each individual cell, and using a module with 144 cells for 2000 modules results in a very large point cloud analysis. This easily consumes the browser’s memory and the system can’t handle the request. That’s why we have this limitation to 2000 modules, which today, with module sizes, is approximately equivalent to 1 MW, and we consider it to be sufficient.

The solution for managing large installations is to create sub-installations, which are usually related to the size of the inverter.

For example, if I need to create a 1 MW installation, I decide to use a 250 kW inverter, which would result in 4 sub-installations of 250 kW each. For the 250 kW sub-installation, I can perform all the analyses, electrical configuration, string calculations, and everything needed for the precise project definition.

Then, the overall project is nothing more than the multiplication of these individual results.

On another level, I can create a layout where, for the sole purpose of visualizing the entire installation on a separate level, I can perform complete layout management of the entire installation without going into the details of the analyses and electrical aspects that I have already completed in the individual 250 kW sub-installation
