  1. Hi Andre, A file has been referred to in the manual under the section "Importing Meteo Data from an ASCII file". The file is "DEMO_Import_Geneva_POA.CSV" which I might have deleted it from the UserData. Is there any way to obtain the file? Thanks,
  2. Hi Andre, Thanks for your reply. Financially, it does not make any impact. We are talking about $700 extra in $7m for a typical 8MW plant. But I have been asked to cap the inverter output, in this case to 800 kW. Thanks a lot for your help.
  3. Inverters usually have a nominal AC power (nameplate), and a maximum AC power. I need to limit the inverters so not to exceed the maximum AC power, but I don't have any success. In this case, the inverter I am using is SMA Sunny Central 800CP-US. I have changed the maximum AC power from 880 kW to 800 kW, and also changed the maximum AC current to a value equal to Nominal AC current (which i 1283 A). But I still exceed the inverter output by 0.5 kW on many occasions during a year, and thus get higher MWh/year than expected. I am aware that there is a power limitation option, and it is ticked in my case. Any suggestions on how to overcome this issue? Thanks
  4. Hi, Thanks for your reply. Let me be a bit clearer. For example if I wan to change a temperature for a specific day, will I be able to do it? Because in the Excel file, the values are only monthly, not hourly or even daily. Thanks
  5. Hi, I am trying to get hourly data for system production under various irradiances, e.g. 500 W/m2, 600 W/m2 etc. These have to be for the same system and the same location. I was wondering how I could change this value and run the simulation. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I have tried on several occasions to import Canadian EPW files (available here: http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/energyplus/cfm/weather_data3.cfm/region=4_north_and_central_america_wmo_region_4/country=3_canada/cname=CANADA). I always get the error that the files are not .epw, which they are. Is there any solution to this? Has someone else encountered the same problem? Thanks.
