  • Less decimal digits (4 digits should suffice)
  • Real tabs instead of \t to separate the column names
  • The Longitude has to be inverted since East and West are the other way around


This is described in our online help: https://help.valentin-software.com/pvsol/2024/en/pages/system-type-climate-and-grid/meteosyn/#options

Kind regards
