Wondering if there is an inbuilt TOD file for summer in the southern hemisphere, or somewhere where one can be downloaded.
Also when graphing first year energy from the system by month it appears there used to be an option for all the TOD periods combined but now you can only display each TOD separately. Is the only way to display all TOD's combined in the latest version to export the data and make the graph manually?
The built-in TOD schedules in SAM are based on the
California Market Price Referent methodology
, so sorry, no built-in schedule for other regions. If you have one with documentation that you would like us to add, please let us know.
The molten salt power tower model does not seem to report a total monthly energy value for Year 1, but does report the monthly output by year (under Annual Data), so you could use the Data Tables tab to construct a table with the monthly and annual data you need and export it to CSV to graph in a spreadsheet program.
