CEC Performance Model with User Entered Specification

Hi Paul,

I'm trying to model a PV module that's not in the database using the CEC Performance Model With User Entered Specifications. I'm using the new First Solar Series 6 module. I uploaded the PDF data sheet so you can see the specs that I entered. For some reason the model doesn't like when I choose the CdTE cell type input. These First Solar Series Six modules are pretty large compared to other CdTe modules 180V, 2.37A, 425W panel. It seems when I choose CIGS, Si or another cell type and run the IV curve the model works but just not for CdTe. Any thoughts?

Any updates on Bill's issue? I'm having the same trouble - unable to model First Solar Series 6 modules...
