Bert Posted December 1, 2020 Report Share Posted December 1, 2020 I am new to PV*SOL and testing my private project successfully so far but I am puzzled about the results after a 1 minute timestep simulation. The phenomenon is best visible in a Carpet Plot (Diagram Editor) of e.g. "PV energy (DC)", "Mismatch (Configuration/Shading)" or “MPP Voltage” that shows a discontinuity at the full hour values. This shows as horizontal stripes in the plot. I tried to analyse the cause of this phenomena but the only assumption that I have is that the somewhere in the calculation hourly values are not interpolated correctly into minute values. I tested this also in the 3D Bay example (with 1 minute demand data) with the same effect. I tried to include a screenshot but I do not understand how to “insert an image from URL”. This URL points to “Hourly discontinuities in calculation MPP 4 Voltage.JPG” on my Onedrive: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnJoS9oSoABOmPQeIqS6vG3TpJB_LQ?e=Rokcqm Is this indeed an error in the program or is there another explanation?
