Electrical Effect Greater than 100%


Recommended Posts


It would be useful to allow the electrical effect parameter to go above 100%. The purpose would be to tune models where there is disagreement with measured data as it is concerned with shading. In cases where the model under predicts, it would serve to add additional shading related losses appropriately, by keeping the additional losses as a function of site conditions, time of day/year, etc.

This calculation "according to strings" corresponds to an upper limit of the possible shading for each specified string.

A "Fraction for Electrical effect" of 100% means that the full beam component is lost when the rectangle si shaded.

A value higher than 100% would mean that more irradiance than the beam would be lost, which doesn't make sense.
