Radiation losses at ground level


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm trying to perform an analysis to prove which configuration of modules would let the ground take more sunlight.  I need this result to figure out which configuration of modules would be better for agrivoltaic systems.
So my question for you is: how do I set the shadowing simulation to compute the amount of radiation that hits the ground?
Thanks in advance

The easiest way would be to do a bifacial simulation. Whenever the bifacial model is used, you have access to the output variable: global on ground, which computes the average irradiance on the ground taking into account the shading from regular rows of tables or trackers. You can choose this variable in the hourly variables.
