This article will cover steps to be taken to add color indications in regards to electrical device connections.

Color coding requires:

  1. Designed PV array layout.
  2. Electrical devices placed using electrical design.

To color code the PV area - open up the Color coding tab in the Electrical design window. 

Each row of colors represents different substations/central inverters. This means that the 1st row of colors will be used for the 1st substation's devices. The color located next to the row of colors is the substation color used for substation hatch later on.

There are 2 options of color coding:

  1. Substation zone coloring;
  2. String level coloring.

Substation zone coloring

Color by substation/central inverter zones will draw up a hatch on top of frames that belong to the same substation/central inverter:

String level coloring

Color by lowest tier device would mean color coding strings based on devices. For instance inverters, string combiner boxes:

Additional options

You are also able to remove coloring for PV areas or hide modules for an easier look:
