Load Profile from measured values - Leap year issue


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've run into an issue with creating a load profile from measured values.

The measured values are half hourly data, kWh, every day, year round, starting from 1st Jan until 31st Dec 2020. The year is a leap year. The HHD data is 17,568 values, PVSol expects the file to import 17,568 values, though after import is successful only 17,520 values are realised. As such, the total annual energy requirement value in PVSol is less than expected.

How can this issue be solved please?


Thank you in advance!

Hi Jordn,

in PV*SOL we always simulate years without leap day. So if you import a leap year, the leap day is filtered out so that the year can be simulated. With half-hourly values, these are the 48 values that are missing. The total energy is thus reduced by the energy consumption of that one day. If you want to keep the original total annual energy amount, you could enter that value in the annual energy field after importing the profile.

Kind regards,
