Post subject:  Unrealistic Production Yields

I have been getting unrealistic readings for yield lately. I cannot find any values I changed that would cause that. An example
Location: Hamilton, OH Lat. 39.4, Long 84.6, Alt 181m, Albedo 0.20 (default). Modules: Forty LG 250 watt modules 10 kW rated capacity, Grid tie, South facing, fixed tilt of 35 deg, No shading. Inverter: Fronius IG Plus V 10.0-1-240 Inverter, 240V AC, 4 strings of 10
I get specific prod of 1367 kWh/kWp/year seems unrealistic, Energy of 13.67 MWh/year. It comes close to a PvWatts derate value of 0.88

Nobody cannot give any explanation if you don't mention the full parameters and data.
You don't mention the GlobInc irradiation value of your meteo data.
The best tool for analysing such results is to have a look on the Loss diagram.

Hi Andre,
Sorry I need your input based on the info I submitted. What is off in my values that would cause
the results shown. What Properties might need changing?

Why are you judging that this is an unreallistic yield ?

If you don't have shading, soiling, or other losses, and no doubt about the quality of your modules, I don't see any reason.
This result is usual for this climate.
