SingleAxisTracker.noct_sam_celltemp(poa_global, temp_air, wind_speed, effective_irradiance=None)#

Deprecated since version 0.9: The noct_sam_celltemp function was deprecated in pvlib 0.9 and will be removed in 0.10.0. Use PVSystem.get_cell_temperature instead.

Use pvlib.temperature.noct_sam() to calculate cell temperature.

  • poa_global (numeric or tuple of numeric) – Total incident irradiance in W/m^2.

  • temp_air (numeric or tuple of numeric) – Ambient dry bulb temperature in degrees C.

  • wind_speed (numeric or tuple of numeric) – Wind speed in m/s at a height of 10 meters.

  • effective_irradiance (numeric, tuple of numeric, or None.) – The irradiance that is converted to photocurrent. If None, assumed equal to poa_global. [W/m^2]


temperature_cell (numeric or tuple of numeric) – The modeled cell temperature [C]


The temp_air and wind_speed parameters may be passed as tuples to provide different values for each Array in the system. If not passed as a tuple then the same value is used for input to each Array. If passed as a tuple the length must be the same as the number of Arrays.
