Tim K Posted July 25, 2014 Share Posted July 25, 2014 Hi,I am attempting to model a modified single axis tracker in PVsyst by constructing a shading scene in "Near Shadings".I was hoping to simulate a whole (1) MWAC inverter block worth of trackers, but after building the scene and trying to run the simulationPVsyst runs very slowly and eventually ends the program. Therefore, I decided to scale up by tracker rows and E-W center to center row spacing by a factor of 10 in order to run the simulation. That way,the area of shading will be very close to the area of the system and I can produce a shading table. So for instance, if a "real-life" typical row is 2m in width and c-c row spacing is 6.1 m, I scaled them up by a factor of (10) to 20m and 61m respectively in order to successfully run the simulation. Is this the correct approach for using "Near Shadings"?Also, if I am implementing a N-S tilt in my simulation, what does PVsyst assume for shading on the modules in the N-S direction? If the spacing (pitch) is not great enough and there is shading on the modules, how does this affect each individual module's production?Thank you for your help.Tim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
