Make SSCAPIJNI.dylib file for Mac 10.12.6

I'm trying to generate the SSCAPIJNI.dylib file for Java, Mac OS Darwin 10.12.6 with sam-sdk-2016-3-14-r3, but I get the following errors:

$ make -f TestSSCAPI.make
TestSSCAPI.make:96: *** Please check the settings for your system. Your system may not be supported. Please contact sam.support@nrel.gov. System: Darwin 10.12.6. Stop.

If I change the if condition on line 43 to look for 10.12, I get the errors below. Are there any options to get this to work with 10.12.6?

Excel VBA integration with SAM SSC.DLL

We're trying to integrate SAM's SSC.DLL within a VBA program in Excel (so we can invoke SAM from Excel).
However, we get the following error message:
Error 48: SSC.DLL file not found

Initially, we got the following error message but were able to fix it by copying the SSC.DLL to the windows\system32 directory:
Error 53: SSC.DLL file not found

Not sure what is going on?

Thanks,
Sol

Sub hourly data with SDK

Hello,

I'm following the example given at https://nsrdb.nrel.gov/api-instructions using the Python SDK and the input data is shown to be at 30 minute intervals. Does that mean it's possible to use the SDK for sub hourly measurements? I'm a little confused as the description in the PVwatts Version 5 manual says the data has to be hourly (with 8,760 points) or does that mean that when you pass it data, the data has to be in multiples of 8,760 so it can handle it?

Thanks for your help!

Obtaining Electric Load Profiles using SDK

Hello,

I am looking to obtain residential electric load profiles by TMY3 location. I know there is a database hosted by the NREL OpenEI website of the Hourly Load Profiles for all TMY3 Locations, but wanted to know if this data is able to be sourced using SSC SDK modules or by another source. Thanks

Kevin

Notices, warnings, errors from SDK

Dear Paul,

I have a question concerning a certain function in the SDK. After I ran a simulation I go through all notices, warnings and error messages to verify validity of the result. I use the log-function for this purpose as proposed in the manual:

ssc_module.Log(idx, msg, type, time)

Installing and using SAM on ubuntu/python

I installed SAM (linux) on the server.

wget https://sam.nrel.gov/system/tdf/content/public_releases/sam-linux-2017-1-17-r3.run?file=1

I also copied the sscapi.py file from the distribution.

I tried running the code at https://nsrdb.nrel.gov/api-instructions but ran into some challenges.

What are the other missing steps that others have taken?

I would love to connect with anyone that is using the python wrapper on ubuntu to talk to SAM sdk only without running the full app and from python.

Thanks.

Input variable in SAM and SAMSDK

Hello,

I have a question and hope that you can help me.

E.g. for the module "tcstrough_physical" the SDKtool lists
the variable "nLoops" with a type of "SSC_INPUT".

In SAM this variable is available in
Trough, Physical - Solar Field - Actual number of loops

But as a fixed field (shaded blue).

Does that mean it is possible to set this variable explicitly from
the SDK but it is calculated implicitly in SAM?

Do I have to handle all the implicit fields in SAM manually in SAMSDK?

Kind regards,
Joe
