Object Parameters

 

Each item of this long list shows the Type-Name and the Type-Description, and then the sub list of Parameter-Names and Parameter-Descriptions.

 

Note also that each object of a particular scene has also an additional parameter "Name". Its value is a string with the "own" object name, which you can edit and use as a short comment to distinguish objects in the tree view of the scene structure. See the chapter "Advanced Options" for more details.  

 

Be aware and check before you buy a product:

1) 2D Primitives, 3D Primitives, Decoration, and Simple Buildings are available in all products of the Shadow Analyzer Collection.

2) Specific "solar" array-objects Static PV-Modules are available in Shadow Calculator and Shadow Analyzer.

3) Specific "solar" array-objects Trackers (with or without PVM) are available in Shadow Analyzer only!

Note: All "solar" array-objects are available in Shadow Visualizer, but for the visualization and project presentation only, without the shadow and power calculations!

Arrays

 

An array-object is a rectangular 2D matrix of its elements. The type of elements is predefined by the array-object type.

 

With the combo box "PAR", you can select (and then edit) the array size (number of elements in the matrix) as well as the shape parameters of its elements.

 

With the "ATT" button, you can open a specific local menu to edit more complex array attributes that cannot be expressed by simple integer or real parameters. For example, you can exclude some elements of the matrix to cover a not-rectangular area by a single array-object, instead to fill the area by a few similar array objects.

 

For "solar" array-objects with PV-modules, you can use ATT-options to manage the configuration of PV-strings.

 

Decoration (for example, windows on walls of buildings, available in all products)

 

A: D-Rects -- Array (a rectangular matrix) of one-side decorative rectangles above the XY-plane of its own CS (initially not a shadower)

 

nx -- number of rectangles along the array's own X-axis in range [1, 100], the value is limited by the condition: nx * ny <= 1024

ny -- number of rectangles along the array's own Y-axis in range [1, 100], value is limited by the condition: nx * ny <= 1024

dY -- Y-dimension of rectangle in range [0, 100]

Stg_H -- stage height above the XY-plane of the array's own CS in range [0, 100]

move_X -- move the entire array along X-axis by move_X steps (dX+gX) in own CS

move_Y -- move the entire array along Y-axis by move_Y steps (dY+gY) in own CS

 

Static PV-Modules (plane panel of PVM or a set of rows of inclined PVM, available in Shadow Calculator and Shadow Analyzer)

 

The "solar" windows of Shadow Calculator and Shadow Analyzer interpret objects of this type as solar collectors, and include them in the shadow and power calculations.

 

A: PVM -- Array (a rectangular matrix) of PV-Modules. The parameter iA is the inclination angle of modules in respect to the XY-plane of own CS. The array with iA = 0 is a plane panel of PVM. Increasing parameters iA and gY, you transform the initially plane array into a set of rows of inclined PVM.

Stg_H -- stage height, the height of the lower module's edge above XY-plane in range [0, 100]

iA -- inclination angle of modules in range [-90, +90]; Normal = Z at 0, = -Y at +90, = +Y at -90

move_X -- move the entire array along X-axis by move_X steps (dX+gX) in own CS

move_Y -- move the entire array along Y-axis by move_Y steps (dY+gY) in own CS

Refr_n -- Refractive Index 'n' of the PV-module front cover, which mainly determines Fresnel Reflection, default = 1.55

 

Note: Y-gaps gY are defined for the initial "horizontal" (in respect to the XY-plane of own CS) state of modules at iA = 0, and then the XY-positions of the module centers stay the same at any changed value of iA, so the periodical Y-steps from row to row also stay the same and equal to dY + gY.

 

PV-Modules on Trackers (available in Shadow Analyzer only !)

 

The "solar" windows of Shadow Analyzer interpret objects of these types as solar collectors, and include them in the shadow and power calculations.

 

Actually, an object of this type is a 4D (or 2D x 2D) structure that consists of a 2D array of Trackers, where each Tracker supports a 2D array (a plane rectangular panel) of PV-Modules. So the ATT management of such an object has three exclude-options: 1) you can exclude an entire tracker together with all its PV-modules; 2) you can set a common pattern for the panel of PV-modules (with the same configuration of excluded modules in all panels); 3) you can exclude individual modules from the entire 4D structure of PV-modules.

Trackers without PVM (implemented as wire-frame models, available in Shadow Analyzer only !)

 

An object of this type by itself is not a solar collector. However, if you attach a set of PV-modules to each tracker, then Shadow Analyzer will interpret such a compound object as a solar collector of your specific design, and will include it in the shadow and power calculations.

 

To manage PV-strings of such a compound object, you need to apply the ATT-editing individually to each set of PV-modules. To unite a few sets of PV-modules (perhaps situated on different trackers) into one PV-string, you can use the parameter Ext-ID.
