Transposition model, GlobInc gain

Fernando Martins

Recommended Posts

Dear PVsyst team,

I am working in some projects where I can see a high GlobInc gain using default Perez model.

Basically, the model is giving numbers higher than ClearSky model calculated by Nrel guidances (gain of transposition ~26%).

When using Hay model, the result is more than 1% lower than Perez model and the results (see the picture) raised an alert on that topic, once simulations we received from providers presented lower gain when compared to ours (maybe a local installation issue?).

I would like to confirm if the difference in the models are consistent and if Perez model in latest version is really reliable.

The Perez model calculation has not been changed.

It is well-known that the Perez model has a higher gain that the Hay model. For fixed planes the difference may be of the order of 1%, depending on the tilt of course.

Here you have probably a tracking system, perhaps with backtracking. This difference of 1.6% seems indeed high, but is probably reasonable. Please check that all other parameters of your simulation are quite identical.
