Measuring units of the Radiation Analysis outputs

This is a reply to a questions from Jacob (and Abraham):

…****which measuring unit does your radiation component output?

There are two different outputs that has two different measuring units:

radiationResult is the amount of radiation for each test point in [kWh/m2]

Note: each test point is the center of a mesh face and the number represents the amount of radiation per m2 of that mesh face.

totalRadiation is radiationResult for each point [kWh/m2] * area of the face [m2] so it is in [kWh]

The image below shows how you can regenerate the totalRadiation by multiplying radiationResult with the area of each face.

I was still in Chicago at that time. :slight_smile:
I think we should leave the old topics with no reply untouched. When we change the category they show up on the top. I don’t know why. :thinking:
