I've attempted to "Fill Zone" using the zone editor in the shading scene construction. I've got 0.20m spacing between tables, 0.02m defined in "field properties"-->"frame", and I don't even have "enable shadow casting" on. After I fill my zone and exit the shading scene construction, I get the following RED error (which won't let me proceed):

"The object "Sample table #3, Zone #1" is penetrating the PV field "Sample table #2, Zone #1". For more reliable shading calculations, please ensure a minimum spacing of 2-3 cm between fields and other shading objects!

All of my sample tables are automatically created by the zone fill function. How do I correct this error?

This is likely due to severe terrain changes in slope. There are a couple things.
  • Keep increasing table spacing until it goes away
  • Manually move each table off of the adjacent one where there is overlap, then reset the table height according to terrain. Do a check under tools to move to the next error. Once the validity check returns no results, you are finished.
  • Ignore table interpenetrations in tools (I never do this personally)

Thanks for responding. We had not defined terrain, so steep slopes cannot be the problem. For whatever reason, PVSyst was creating tables on top of tables, so we manually deleted duplicates to get the simulation to run.
