Extracting the grid

Dear all,

I am a newbie to Ladybug and I am trying to extract the grid having incident radiations as a surface so I can optimize the placement of PV panels (only at those surfaces which have high kWh/m2) or is there any other way that the surfaces can be selected based on the incident radiation results?

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Hi Usman,

What does your current result look like?

Picturing it I imagine you have results and mesh from your output. I think if you use face boundaries on the mesh output you’ll have a list of curves the same length and order as your list of results - so if you then do a > test on the results and apply a cull pattern of the output of that to the face boundaries you’ll have all your areas of the mesh above whatever threshold you set.

Hope that makes sense and applies to what you’re working with.



Thanks a lot Charlie. It works!!!
