The required format for the importing of hourly parameters in PVsyst  is the following:

  • Text file (CSV format with commas or semicolons) written in ANSI  (not UTF8)
  • All lines beginning with the hash symbol '#' are assumed to be comments, and will be ignored
  • Blank lines are ignored
  • The first line that does not start with #, holds the column titles. The first two columns should be "Date", and "P Load", further columns are ignored
  • The following line contains the units of the data in the columns. The date should have no units, the units for the load can be power ([W], [kW] or [MW]) or energy ([Wh], [kWh] or [MWh])
  • Then there follow the lines with the values, one line per data entry
  • The date and time in the first column can be given either in European format (DD/MM/YY hh:mm) or in US format (MM/DD/YY hh:mm)
  • The file should contain all hours of a generic year (from  01/01 at 00:00 up to 31/12 at 23:00). Only day and month will be retained, the year will be ignored
  • These dates/hours do not need to be related to the dates of your input meteo file: they are for each hour of a generic year

If you are blocked, you can send us your excel file to support@pvsyst.com in order to look at it and help you.
