Module Library

The module library displays all available module files. To add a module file, select Create Module, which displays a module data screen.

Here, all module details are entered; physical & nameplate, 1-diode characteristics and advanced considerations. Once all of the module data is provided, save the file to complete the module creation process.

Module Defined Shading

Shading profiles can be defined on the prediction level, but each module file has a default shading profile defined within it. This profile is defaulted based on cell technology.

c-Si variant = Fractional 100%

CdTe = Linear

CIGS = Linear

Each of these options can be selected from the drop down in the “Shading” tab, in addition to other shading options. For detailed instruction on how each works, see the Models and Algorithms page.
