Modeling Topaz Solar Farm (550 MW) PVWatts & Detailed Photovoltaic Models SAM 2016.3.14

Dear SAM users;

I have been working on the Topaz Solar Farm (550 MW) PVWatts & Detailed Photovoltaic models on the SAM 2016.3.14 for a while.

Please find the Topaz Solar Model.sam file (As Draft) for the Topaz Solar Farm original configuration model (draft revision 18/09/2016).

Please do not use this file in any of your studies such as MSc. Thesis and PhD. Thesis. This file is not ready to be used for any research activity yet.

If you know Topaz Solar Farm, please contribute to this research and help me to fill in all of the items correctly and properly.

I will try to contact to the researchers and the engineers who worked on the Topaz Solar Farm to verify all of the items to present to SAM users as final in 2017. I would like to finalize some scientific conference and journal research papers and submit them to conferences and journals in 2017-2018.
