orientation_azimuth – Facing direction of the panel


module generators;
class solar {
     double orientation_azimuth[deg];
object solar {
     orientation_azimuth value;


orientation_azimuth is used for calculating the solar insulation when the panel orientation type is FIXED.

orientation_azimuth is referenced on the normal cardinal coordinate scheme (0 = N, 90 = E, 180 = S, 270 = W).


By default, orientation_azimuth = 180, which means the panel is facing towards the Equator.
