Bifaciality not being calculated


Recommended Posts

Hey Team Valentine,


I created a new Bifacial module for my simulation with 70% Bifacial Factor. However, when I run the simulation, I get absolutely no gains or losses in the PV System Energy Balance. What could be the cause of this?


Your help would be much appreciated.

Hi Emile,

thanks for sharing the projects. I also apologize for the late reply.

My assumption is that bifacial modules are not very suitable for an east-west system, as very little irradiation reaches the back of the module.

Furthermore, I noticed that in the project that you posted, the bifaciality factor for the module is only 20% and not 70% as you wrote. Was that your intention?

I'm sorry if I misunderstood something. Please contact me again if this doesn't answer your question.

Kind regards
