Potential Problem with Resource Azimuth
While running a CSP model (steam or molten salt, doesn't seem to matter which), I noticed that some sites have what seems to me to be an odd artifact with respect to the solar azimuth. I am using the built in locations on the SAM program. For example, if you use India (Trivandrum) and plot the time series, the resource solar azimuth really spikes in March - it almost looks like the data is inverted. I am not seeing this with every location, but I randomly clicked around and noticed the same artifact with Sri Lanka (Kankesanturai) and UAE (Abu Dhabi) - there probably are a few more.
