Very large scale ground mounted shading


Recommended Posts


I am wanting to model the effects of shading upon a very large scale ground mounted solar farm. I have read the FAQ section in relation to how to do this for larger schemes but just want to check if there is a maximum size of scheme which can be handled by the module before encountering major processing problems. I am looking at a PV farm capacity of around 5 MW.

There is no limit, the calculating time will simply increase, perhaps becoming prohibitive.

And this doesn't depend on the total Power of the system, but on the number of "tables" (elementary mecanical rectangles receiving PV modules).

For a 5 MW plant and reasonable tables sizes, there should not be problems with the version 6, where the shading factor calculation has been optimized.
