|Epw File||_epwFile||Input .epw file path by using the "File Path" parameter, or Ladybug's "Open EPW And STAT Weather Files" component.||Goo|
|PV SWHsurface||_PV_SWHsurface||- Input planar Grasshopper/Rhino Surface (not a polysurface) on which the PV modules/SWH collectors will be applied. If you have a polysurface, explode it (using "Deconstruct Brep" component) and then feed its Faces(F) output to _PV_SWHsurface. Surface normal should be faced towards the sun.
- Or create the Surface based on initial PV/SWH system size by using "PV SWH system size" component.||Goo|
|Annual Shading||annualShading_||Losses due to buildings, structures, trees, mountains or other objects that prevent solar radiation from reaching the PV module/Solar water heating collector.
Input range: 0 to 100(%), 0 being unshaded, and 100 being totally shaded PV module/SWH collector.
If not supplied default value of 0(%) will be used.||Goo|
|North||north_||Input a vector to be used as a true North direction, or a number between 0 and 360 that represents the clockwise degrees off from the Y-axis.
If not supplied, default North direction will be set to the Y-axis (0 degrees).||Goo|
|Albedo||albedo_||A list of 8767 (with header) or 8760 (without the header) albedo values for each hour during a year.
Albedo (or Reflection coefficient) is an average ratio of the global incident solar radiation reflected from the area surrounding the PV surface.
It ranges from 0 to 1.
It depends on the time of the year/day, surface type, temperature, vegetation, presence of water, ice and snow etc.
If no list supplied, default value of 0.20 will be used, corrected(increased) for the presence of snow (if any).

|Precision||precision_||Represents the square root number of analysis field for the output "geometry" mesh. Ranges from 1-100.
Example - precision of 4, would mean that 4 fields in X direction (Azimuth) and 4 fields in Y direction (Tilt) = 16 fields, will be used to calculate the final "geometry" mesh.
For lower precision numbers (say < 20) even precision numbers are more accurate.
If not supplied, default value of 20 will be used.||Goo|
|Scale||scale_||Scale of the overall geometry.
If not supplied, default value of 1 will be used.||Goo|
|Origin||origin_||Origin for the final "geometry" output.
If not supplied, default point of (-15,0,0) will be used.||Goo|
|Legend Par||legendPar_||Optional legend parameters from the Ladybug "Legend Parameters" component.||Goo|
|Analysis Period||analysisPeriod_||Script variable TOF||Goo|
|___________________||Script input ______________________.||Goo|
|Bake It||bakeIt_||Set to "True" to bake the Tilt and orientation factor results into the Rhino scene.
If not supplied default value "False" will be used.||Goo|
