Generate custom sky with gendaylit for a particular minute


i have irradiance measurements in minute intervals,
and would like to create a sky model using gendaylit for a particular point-in-time,
for instance on March 18th, at 15:12.

The genCustomSky does not have a “minute” input,
is there a way to create a .sky file where gendaylit will know the exact time,
so as to position the sun correctly according to the minute selected?

You can use the hour input to specify a specific minute,
so as the decimal corresponds to percentage of hour:

an input of 15.5 corresponds to 15:30
an input of 9.25 corresponds to 9:15


You can also use this component to calculate the value.
