Simulation Error message given using the CEC Performance Model with User Entered Specifcations based on the Abound AB1-75

Good Morning Everyone,

I input some data in the CEC Performance Model with User Entered Specifcations based on the Abound AB1-75 Series Thin Film. When I reached the end of inputing each of the variables for the panel as well as the inverter I clicked on the "run all simulations" button and received the following error:

Simulation error!
The simulation failed to complete successfully. Please check the inputs and try again.
If you continue to see this message, please contact user support.

Then the error message says the following:
-----SAMSIM Messages-----
MSG[0]: SVAL LOOKUP ERROR trnsys.user_trdsrc
With 50 additional messages similiar to this one. If someone could assist me with this I would be grateful.

Sincerely,

Aaron

Be sure to use the correct units for the temperature coefficients of Voc and Isc. SAM requires that they be in V / degrees C and A / degrees C, respectively. Some data sheets provide them in % / degrees C. You can easily convert the units as described in the following video, starting around minute 4:11:

Part 5: PV Module with User Specifications

You can also find the similar AB1-70 in the CEC module library (select "CEC Performance Model with Module Database" to see the library), and compare the default parameters with those you entered -- they should be similar. You can create a new case to compare your parameters with those for the AB1-70.

If your parameters seem to be correct, please attach a SAM file (.zsam extension) to a reply to this post and I will try to help you troubleshoot.

Best regards,
Paul.
