Post subject:  Plane of Array Irradiance Calculation

Hello,

Does the inactive frame which borders a module matter for calculating POA, or rather, is it used or not used to calculate POA? This area is included in the module dimensions, so in a shade scene, the area represents the entire area of the module (cells + frame). But for production purposes, I am assuming that the cell area is used, is that correct? Is the amount of incident light used to generate the energy results based on the cell area, or on the module area? Hopefully the question is clear enough.

Thanks.
