Weather Dataset Default Setting allows Tenant Admins to specify the desired default weather dataset to be used for Aurora simulations. The default data set used for Aurora simulations will be set to Best Available until it is changed by the Tenant Admin to a different dataset.
The Best available tenant setting will choose the best weather dataset based on the project location. NREL PSM > TMY3 > IWEC. Solcast will be the prioritized option in Europe.
Note: If a tenant has already chosen a default Weather data set setting other than NREL (such as TMY3), we will not change it.
How to Set Default weather datasets
1. Tenant Admins will access the Tenant Settings. Within the Performance simulations menu, the Admin will select the weather dataset they wish to set as default.
2. After creating a design, the user can access the Simulation preferences menu within Design Mode and override the default dataset defined by the Admin.
