I’m actually have some difficulties to use the Weather Converter to split the global into direct normal and diffuse horizontal values.

I read on the Auxiliary Programs document and on Unmet hours on these posts:

Unfortunately, I didn’t understand how to proceed.

In my case, I have global values from an external file and I want to split it with the Weather Converter.

Someone has an easier way to explain how to proceed?

You need to create a .def file that will match a csv file in which you have your data. One of the DataElements will be Global Horizontal Radiation.

Hi Julien, do you know how to actually make this work ? Because I tried your suggestion and it does not work for me. See my post here : Thanks !!
