AnalysisObj.analysis(octfile, name, frontscan, backscan, plotflag=False, accuracy='low', RGB=False)[source]

General analysis function, where linepts are passed in for calling the raytrace routine _irrPlot and saved into results with _saveResults.

Parameters
  • octfile (string) – Filename and extension of .oct file

  • name (string) – Name to append to output files

  • frontscan (scene.frontscan object) – Object with the sensor location information for the front of the module

  • backscan (scene.backscan object) – Object with the sensor location information for the rear side of the module

  • plotflag (boolean) – Include plot of resulting irradiance

  • accuracy (string) – Either ‘low’ (default - faster) or ‘high’ (better for low light)

  • RGB (Bool) – If the raytrace is a spectral raytrace and information for the three channe wants to be saved, set RGB to True.
