Sun Position graphs

Recommended Posts

Hello, just putting this question out there; 

how are Sun position graphs made, and can they be made from PV Sol? Is there a way of illustrating the sun path in PV Sol?


The graph below is copied from the PV Sol software help page; https://help.valentin-software.com/pvsol/calculation/irradiation/sun-position/

Dear Jordn,

the sun position graph is visible in the horizon editor. In 3D projects this is here:



In 2D projects it can be found here:



The lines shown for every month refer to the 21st of each month, so that the real solstice can be seen.

Kind regards,
