jammyc Posted June 5, 2015 Share Posted June 5, 2015 Hi,I have a ground-mounted site with a very slight (varying 1-2degrees) E-W camber/yaw (Y-axis rotation). My client has asked me to run a parametric study on the array tilt angle, with a constant pitch (i.e varying the shading angle). I've done this several times before with zero camber on other projects but this time the simulations (except the first which matches the model) are failing with the error"Line :SIM_xxxThe orientation of the collector plane for shadings doesn't match the one defined in the "Orientation" parameters of the PV array.Simulation not executed !"I think this is due to the rotation in the Y axis causing a difference between the array definition tilt and azimuth (e.g. 10, 0) and the actual incident normal tilt and azimuth (~10,5.7).Am I doing something wrong - has someone else got this to work? Or is it a limitation of the batch options? I feel like it should work so apologies if I've missed an obvious setting somewhere! If I do the same without the tilt it's quite happy.Thanks,James Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
