Post subject:  Performance Ratio error

Hello,

I'm doing a grid-connected project on PVsyst 6.70 and this is the first time that I encounter this error. On the advanced simulation and generating the output file I normally use 5 defined variables: 1- Horizontal global irradiation; 2- ambient temperature; 3- effective Global, corr. for IAM and shadings; 4- Energy injected into grid; 5-Performance Ratio. As mentioned before never had any problems using these parameters on the .CSV file. The problem that I have now is some abnormal values on the PR results, 13 PR values with a -1317.8 which seem not to correct.

see bellow:

Can you please help me solving this?

These are marginal points.

All these data are at beginning or end of the day.
For each one you have a null GlobEff, and a negative yield (night loss).
The error of PVsyst is to issue a value for PR in these conditions. We have to check this.
