Changing significative figures in inputs


Recommended Posts


I have done a fast research and I did not find any other topic on the subject. I apology if it already exists.

I would like to know if I could get to modify the significative figures showed in the inputs of PVsyst reports. For example, if I give an input of 0.45% AC ohmic losses, in the report it will show either 0.4% or 0.5% . So, even if the software takes 0.45% for the calculation, a third person reading the report can have a 10% error reading the imput loss.

Thank you for reading.

We could indeed increase the number of decimals here (and in many other places). This would make the reading of the report more heavy, without a significantly better accuracy.

For your example, the "reading error" represents perhaps 10% of your wiring resistance loss (because it is very low, probably not realistic), but 0.05% of the system yield ! I doubt that your Rwiring evaluation is much better than this value.
