Transient Thermal – Analysis setting – Time step

    • klemen1991

      Dear all,

      I'm having a problem with correctly setting the transient settings for my PV module. I'm trying to calculate time dependency of temperature on the backside of my PV module. I was using the tabular data of thin coeficient (convection), wind speed (convection) and heat flux (radiation) on the front side of the PV module.

      I have the measurements of all those parameters, but I'm having trouble setting the time dependency of temperature. I have half-hour measurement (which means 48 measurements of all three parameters) and I would like to calculate temperature for each measurements (48 values for temperature).

      I was looking at some old posts, but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Below you can see my case.

      Can someone please help me.

      Thank you in advance.

      You to change Auto Time Stepping from Programmed Controlled to Off and then specify 48 solution steps.n
