Post subject:  2 axis tilt angle for curved surface

I would like to put PV on a curved surface but i can work out how to give it tilt angles in two directions. Any help would be appreciated.

Create the curved surface, import into pvsyst as ground data, drop modules onto the curved surface (under edit > set auto altitude). Use a .csv file with coordinates X, Y, Z (in meters) which define your surface.

You cannot define curved surfaces in PVsyst.
You have to create a set of planar surfaces, and use the option "Orientation > Several orientations".

However be aware that each orientation should be treated independently (on a different inverter MPP input).
You can eventually mix 2 orientations (the orientations #1 and #2) on one MPP input.
In you case you have to do some approximations.

By curved surface I meant import ground data (.csv) which approximates a curved surface to give his modules tilt and baseline slope.

Yes you can define a terrain by (X,Y,Z) coordinates.
See the help "Project design > Shadings > Near Shadings: Import > CSV Ground data"

And you can distribute PV tables on it.
