Dear fellow PVSyst users,

I recently was surprized by some very large loss factors when using Boviet 6612P 320 Optimized modules, as shown:

Investigating the IAM curve, the Scandia curve looks really strange:

In general, I thought that the Scandia model was experimentally confirmed. Is this the case? Has anyone seen this before? What would you consider a reasonable approach to this?

Thank you,

I really don't understand how you got this result.
The Sandia model is hard-coded in PVsyst, the values are unmodifiable and give a result very close to the normal Fresnel's model.

This curve is probably a user-defined IAM profile, specified in your PV module, with completely erroneous parameters.
