bifacial_radiance contains a series of Python wrapper functions to make working with RADIANCE easier, particularly for the PV researcher interested in bifacial PV performance. For more information, check out our documentation, Tutorials in the form of Jupyter Notebooks, or reffer to our Wiki and Issues page.

Installation This video shows how to install the bifacial_radiance software and all associated software needed. More info on the Wiki. Instructions are also shown below.

For detailed instructions of how to install bifacial_radiance, you can also refer to the installation guide


A GUI has been added in version 3.0. The GUI reads/writes all input parameters necessary to run a simulation, and runs the specified simulation by calling the correct functions with the specified parameters. So no need to use a journal or a script! But you still need to install following the procedure below.

To run the gui, import bifacial_radiance and run bifacial_radiance.gui()



We have a tutorial video, showing how the program is structured, how to use the Jupyter tutorials and the GUI. You can watch it here Tutorial Webinar, with the slides available here.

Check out the Jupyter Tutorial Notebooks to see detailed examples of the capacities of bifacial_radiance. The Intro examples and the readthedocs documentation also provide a good starting point.
