Facing the sun
Shading from nearby or far obstacles may significantly reduces the PV plant efficiency.
Shading may come from trees, tree lines, hills, mountains, buildings, a row of PV modules , … Shading varies with latitude, month time of the day, height of the obstacle, etc,…
This Simulation visualizes the shading as a function of latitude, month, day, hour, and height of the obstacle.
It provides singular, EW as well as NS shading from 0 to 90° Lat.
The CDF Player Plug-in must be installed to run this simulation.
