bifacial_radiance.AnalysisObj

class bifacial_radiance.AnalysisObj(octfile=None, name=None, hpc=False)[source]

Analysis class for performing raytrace to obtain irradiance measurements at the array, as well plotting and reporting results.

__init__(octfile=None, name=None, hpc=False)[source]

Initialize AnalysisObj by pointing to the octfile. Scan information is defined separately by passing scene details into AnalysisObj.moduleAnalysis()

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

  • name

  • hpc (boolean, default False. Waits for octfile for a) – longer time if parallel processing.

Methods

analysis(octfile, name, frontscan, backscan)

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

analyzeRow(octfile, scene[, rowWanted, ...])

Function to Analyze every module in the row.

makeFalseColor(viewfile[, octfile, name])
