Importing Climate Data into PVSol (error)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I would like to ask a question about importing climate data. I got the TMY data from PVGIS, and I am trying to import it to PVSOL, but I have some problems doing this. 

I have downloaded  *.csv file and tryed to transform to  a *.dat file that I could import into PVSOL.

I want to import this *.dat file, but PVSOL shows this message: "Conversion failed. Formatting error". 

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. May somebody help me solve this problem?

I have attached two files, *.csv file and *.dat file.


Thank you

Hi Gytis,

please refer to this section of our help in order to see how the dat file has to look like:


And also be aware that the PVGIS data seems to be shifted in time, so you will have to correct that as well:


Hope that helps, kind regards,
