PVSYST 4.21 – software for PV design

This has been sitting in my del.icio.us inbox since April 2006.  I can’t remember where I found the link originally.  

PVSYST 4.21 is a PC software package for the study, sizing, simulation and data analysis of complete PV systems.

It is suitable for grid-connected, stand-alone, pumping and DC-grid (public transport) systems, and offers an extensive meteorological and PV-components database.

This software is oriented towards architects, engineers, and researchers, and holds very helpful tools for education. It includes an extensive contextual Help, which explains in detail the procedures and the models used.

A 10 day demo version of the software is available, after which a fee of about 450 pounds (900 CHF)  needs to be paid.

What other software* do folks use for sizing PV’s?

*scribbling on the back of a fag packet is not a valid answer to this question

    Is there simular software available that mimics PVSYST or a trial version of PVSYST to become familiar with how it may work.
