bendesa1962 Posted June 28, 2022 Share Posted June 28, 2022 (edited) Hi, I keep on running into this error message. I know what it means but I can't just remove it. If I'm correct it means that the number of PV Modules defined in System does not meet the necessary area in the Near Shading part of the software. More specific the total area defined in the rectangular PV Plane area's is not enough for the panels defined in System. Ok that sounds logical. My first question is: If you choose for defining the rectangular size by the option: By modules how is it than possible to get this error message. The modules is know by PVSyst and also shown in the window of rectangular field. You let the program know 20 PV Modules in length and 5 in height. You also give in the X and Y spacing. The software is calculating the area by itself. But actually it's calculation is wrong because I get the error message? Second question: If you choose for defining the rectangular size by the option: By sensitive sizes I have defined 5 PV rectangle faces 4 have the same size for PV Module landscape 20 in length 5 in height I gave the rectangle the dimensions of 6,00 x 46,00 The size of the panels is 2,279 x 1,134 X spacing 0.02 Y spacing 0.02 So total size needed 20 x 2,279 + 19 x 0.02 = 45,96 5 x 1,134 + 4 x 0.02 = 5,75 So that must fit in the defined PV Area 6,00 x 46,00 The 5th PV Rectangle has the following dimensions 12,00 x 37,00 PV Modules Length 16, 10 in height The size of the panels is 2,279 x 1,134 X spacing 0.02 Y spacing 0.02 So total size needed: 16 x 2,279 + 15 x 0.02 = 36,76 10 x 1,134 + 9 x 0.02 = 11,52 The total number of panels defined in System is 560 The total number defined in Near Shading is: 20 x 5 x 4 = 400 16 x 10 = 160 Total 560 Where do I go wrong? Many thx for your contribution Kind regards Ben Edited June 28, 2022 by bendesa1962 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
