  1. Hi everyone & Valentin, we're creating an orientation and pitch chart to show others clearly the kind of performances to expect. Like a compass - difference in Orientation axis follows around the chart, and difference in pitch runs from the centre to the circumference in smaller to larger circles (0 degrees to 80 degrees pitch). So the first circle from the centre represents 10 degrees pitch, the second circle from the centre represents 20 degrees pitch and so on. It's quite smart and will hopefully give clarity to others than Northern facing systems still produce an acceptable level of generation. This is what we've made so far as an example; ...All we've done above is estimated what we think the chart would look like. We'd like to make a PV Sol experiment on what the chart would actually look like. So to do this I'm noting down the PV Sol PV Generator Energy (AC Grid) value for every different combination of orientation and pitch. I've made one for Newquay UK using 14 SunPower Maxeon2 350 panels and a solis 3.68kw inverter (no shading). Just as an illustration; Just using my simple head I would have initially thought East and West orientations would mirror eachother down the South line, as in East and West would give equal or similar energy - lets say 20° due West would provide the same amount of energy as 20° due East. But then this is Newquay, there's the ocean to the West which would skew the results to favour the West though a big water body Albedo. So then I tried other locations; Baldhu UK, Norfolk UK, Riyadh SA and PV Sol shows West orientations generate more PV Generator Energy (AC Grid) than East orientations. Couple of questions please; is there a location in the world where East and West orientations match PV Generator Energy (AC Grid)? am I missing something here... generally speaking is it normal for West orientations to generate more than East? Thank you everyone!! Yours, Jordan

  2. Dear Martin, I'm so happy now. Thank you it worked but with some additions to what you recommended. I made it to run as Windows 8 compatibility, changed the override to "system" and made it run as "Administrator". Please see a screenshot of the clicked/selected properties. Thank you so much
