Hourly Energy Only Accounts for 1 Axis of Dual Axis System?

Currently the annual energy calculation returned from getting the number of annual_energy works fine for a dual axis system. However, the hourly energy calculation only seems to account for 1 axis as the values returned are half of what is expected of a dual axis system.

Is this intended for the hourly energy calculation or is there a way to handle dual axis systems differently? (inherited this code base and am new to PV and SAM so not sure what the appropriate outcome is for this).

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi Aaron,

SAM can model photovoltaic systems with fixed, one-axis tracking, two-axis tracking, and azimuth-axis tracking arrays.

Are you running the desktop version of SAM, or using a script or program you wrote to interact with the SAM API?

Best regards,
Paul.
