PTC and LFR

I am doing a performance analysis of physical model parabolic trough and linear fresnel reflector. When I ran the simulation, I found everything fine except the absence of "Plant Efficiency" in the result summary (other results like annual energy, gross to net conversion, capcity factor, and water usage were available). Do SAM automatically provide the value of plant efficiency or I need to calculate it seperately? I am a student and new user of SAM, so help me with this, please.

Hello,

Both of those models report the "Cycle efficiency (gross)" in the time series results. You can find that variable after running a simulation on the Results page Data tables, Time series, Profiles, Statistics and Heat Map tabs.

Best regards,
Paul.
