Two simple questions about design point and wind speed

Dear Paul

I have two simple questions for CSP.

1. Since we have a design point in the CSP tower simulation, then what is the design point sun position?

2. There is a wind stow speed for heliostats. The question is does SAM take into consideration of the wind influence on the heliostats tracking error?

These are two simple questions. I will really appreciate if you can tell me more! Thank you very much!

Dear Han,

1. The design point sun position is at noon on the summer solstice, so June 21 in the northern hemisphere, and December 21 in the southern hemisphere.

2. SAM does not model the wind's effect on the optical performance of the heliostat field.

Best regards,
Paul.

Thank you for your reply! How can I get the SolarPILOT other than the downloading webset. I have filled that webpage for many times, but I still cannot dowmload it.
Is it possible that I can get the setup files from email?

Dear Harry,

What happens when you complete the download request form? Have you tried contacting the SolarPILOT support email address?

Best regards,
Paul.

Dear Paul

Nothing happend when I filled those blanks. After I clicked the download butten, the webpage would go back to its original status as if I have filled nothing.

I have not contacted the SolarPILOT support email address. I don't know that email address.

Is there any way to deal with this problem?

Best regards,

Han
