smsas Posted June 6, 2017 Share Posted June 6, 2017 Hi,I am simulating bifacial production using the latest PVsyst version.Seeing the results, I am wondering if there's any kind of validation on the results given by the model?PVsyst consistently reports irradiance gains of 3 to 6% on the rear side of fixed systems (20-30% albedo). I have find that this is not congruent with the measured data I have read in different empirical studies: Modelling of bifacial gain for stand-alone and in-field installed bifacial (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1876610216304520)Field Example of Bifacial Gain at Sandia (https://pvpmc.sandia.gov/pv-research/bifacial-pv-project/outdoor-bifacial-pv-performance-data/field-example-of-bifacial-gain-at-sandia/) I would appreciate any comment on the accuracy of the model.Thank you very much.Best regards,Sebastian.
