Question:

Does SunDAT support bifacial modules?


Solution:

Yes, SunDAT supports bifacial modules in energy analysis.  The global library contains some bifacial modules and you can create your own using the clone tool.  If a bifacial module is used in the layout, energy analysis will generate production estimates knowing the modules are bifacial.  You can also change the settings in the energy analysis interface under the modules tab to activate bifacial as well as change the settings of the bifacial modules (transmission factor and bifaciality).
