30-minute Simulations

Is it possible to set the ‘data’ results to be listed in 30 minute intervals instead of 60 minute?

Yes, SAM's solar models can run simulations in up to 1-minute intervals. The simulation time step is determined by the weather data, so to run 30-minute simulations you will need 30-minute weather data.

NREL's NSRDB provides 30-minute data, so if you do not have your own data, you can download it from:
