Export Formats

Meteonorm's Export Formats

36 different predefined export formats are available. They cover most of the established simulation software in solar energy applications and building design. All export formats are available for hourly as well as monthly values. Data is written to ASCII files.

Alternatively, the parameters and the desired units can be defined in a user-defined export format.

Export formats

Standard

Standard format with global radiation, diffuse radiation, radiation on inclined plane, direct normal radiation and temperature

Meteo

Format with standard meteorological parameters (only monthly values)

Standard minute

Format for minute models with global radiation, diffuse radiation, radiation on inclined plane, direct normal radiation, clearsky radiation, temperature and wind speed

Humidity
