For calculating shading , I want to know what is the result exactly? The result just show the percentage of shade in surface or the rate of direct and diffuse radiation also is considered?


What is Effective Shading Coefficients exactly?

Which parameters are concerned in Effective Shading Coefficients exactly?


For setting the overshadowing mask in calculated data , which parameters are counted in overshadowing percentage? And which parameters in stress direct and diffuse?

I also would to like to know this.

In my simulations, the effective shading coefficient seems to be the opposite of the real shading percentage.

For example: My surface is a rooftop with almost no shadings. My Avg. SC is 92.6%, my maximum SC is 58.3% and the minimum is 100%.

Can I always consider the opposite values (7.4%, 41.7% and 0%) for the shading percentages of each month?
