Time Zone

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Time Zone is the difference between the local Legal time, and the UTC or GMT

UTC = Coordinated Universal Time, GMT = Greenwich Mean Time.

PVsyst usually uses the time zone corresponding to the Winter local time. The summer time is one more unit.

For example in Europe, the Winter time corresponds to GMT+1, when the summer time  is GMT+2.
