Offshore BOS variables for statistical analysis

Hello, I have some question regarding offshore balance of system variables for statistical analysis as listed below.

1. Are offshore BOS variables not available for input to parametric/stochastic analysis?

2. most of offshore BOS variables shows non-relevance to tornado chart output such as levelized costs and total installed costs even with extreme change (up to 100%) of input variables, is this already known problem and any way to fix it?

analysis of solar power plant

I have done the simulation of plant taking "mundargi" region as a reference. for the average GHI of 5.77 kwh/square m/day , yearly production which i got from SAM software is 1778,619 kwh. But when i took another region " vijayapur" with average irradiance of 5.83 kWh/ square.m/day, come up with result of 1630,319 kWh. Hence in general for more value of irradiance, should get more output energy value. where as this a different and opposite case. please help me to get solution. Thank you

I am looking to find the expected P50 net annual energy production for each year of a 25 year plan. SAM P50/P90 simulation only provides the net annual production for one year. I would like to know if anyone knows how I can obtain this data.

abnormal weather condition


How can I simulate system for 25 years that in one year weather condition is severe and significantly different from other years?

Monthly Weather file format

Hi there,

How can I create a simple weather file which includes only monthly insolation data excluding any hourly or sub-hourly records?

I have data in the format:

Stochastic Analysis - Input Values


When setting up variables for a stochastic analysis I noticed that an input variable for a State-sponsored Production Based Incentive (PBI) expressed as $/kWh is not available.

I want to demonstrate a high correlation between total installed costs and varied cash incentive levels and their impact on the resulting Net Present Value and simple Payback.

I've already used these same variables in a parametric analysis and wanted to compare results with a stochastic analysis.

Please advise.

Mike -

Can I translate my analyses internationally?

Is there a way I can create SAM analyses in different parts of the world? I'm specifically interested in doing so within West Africa- but I'm not sure how to find a) applicable data, or b) what (if any) US area might be the most comparable.

any suggestions?

Solar energy , Levelised cost of electricity generation

I am renewable consultant for residential project in India, I am exploring it for use in new residential project in India where we plan to use solar energy.
Thanks for wonderful software, I am planning to calculate levelised cost of energy with photovoltic cells.
Is there any way where I get levelised cost of electricity generation ?
I am a newbie so sorry if I am missing something basic.

Thanks a lot for help.
