SAM, followed an OOP programming feature ?

Hi everyone,
I know that SAM was developped using the C++ lanquage, but I would like to know if the software was developped following an object oriented programmation approach or a procedural approach.
Thank you so much

How do I track on unpublished posts

Hi,

As SAM support forum lists posts once approval made, there are some pending posts which I cannot track on the status in the account menu. Could you provide tracking functions for those posts under review for approval so that duplication of same question can be avoided?

Best regards,
Seyong

Thermal load?

Hello!

I'm starting a project to analyze different methods of solar water/HTF heating to power an Organic Rankine Cycle for power generation with TES. After experimenting with some models already (CSP, IPH, and solar water heating), I was wondering what would be the best method to simulate variable electrical and thermal load requirements or if this would not be possible?

Thanks

ReOpt (Lite) functionality into SAM

Hi,

Any plans to get the functionality of ReOpt into SAM?
In other words, the possibility of directly simulating optimal PV Size based on uploaded load profile.

Thanks,

modules for hydrogen electrolysis

Hi ! I would like to add new modules to SSC library in ordre to build model for production of hydrogen using eletrolysis (The eletricity needed in electrolysis of water will be generated from PV/CSP system). I'm not sure how to get started, so wanted to touch base with your team to plan how I can add this new feature.

Please add Time of Use in calculating accurate solar system size and provide more accurate financial information

I am in California where our utility company has us on a Time of Use (TOU) billing plan. During the day the we use the least amount of power and the power company will pay us $0.45 kWhr. In the evening and weekends when we are charged $0.12 kWhr is when we use the most electricity. This means for every Kwhr the power company purchase from us at $0.45 we can buy it back for $0.12. The software currently only models for yearly kwr offset and when it should be calculating the yearly financial offset of solar.

How do you use SAM with Microinverters (APSystems)

The SAM setup seems to only allow string inverters... As most installs are shifting to microinverters and APSystems is the manufacturer of choice for these products I'd like to know how to use them here.

Is there a pre-made datafile for the YC-500A and YC-500i at 240v, YC-1000 3 phase in 208v, 480v with the correct settings and inputs?

Any update on when multiple MPPT inverters will be supported?

Multi-MPPT inverters have been on the market for a long time now, other software supports them, when can we expect SAM to support them?

Thanks
