Recent and Planned Improvements to the System Advisor Model (SAM)

Research output: NRELPresentation


This talk will focus on recent and planned modeling improvements to the NREL System Advisor ModelTM (SAM), including PV hourly clipping correction, expanded geographic scope of PVWatts including Ukraine, additional options for hybrids, and enhanced PySAM and GUI interoperability. Additional topics will also include: bifacial modeling features including irradiance on the ground for agrivoltaics, PV uncertainty simulation features, and integrations with other NREL and industry tools.
