    Version update:

    version 1.008

    1. Added support for units so data can be entered in terms of metric or English units

    2. Results are displayed in these unit terms as well so they can be easily copied over to WGEN in terms of these same units

    Version update:

    version 1.013

    We show the units for precip, temp, and radiation on the dashboard but need to only show the units that apply to the chosen system (imperial vs metric). This change is only cosmetic and affects the user interface. Below is a screen capture of this part of the dashboard.

    Hi, I'm new here. Which version of Goldsim Player does this work with? I have used 12.1 and 14.0.

    The file still downloads as a .gsm, and I tried opening it as a .gsm and as a .gsp (manually changing extension), but no dice. I get an error message:

    "Goldsim player cannot open this model file! It was generated in an older product version of Goldsim.

    Please convert the Goldsim model (*.gsm) to the new version and regenerate the Player model file (*.gsp)"

    Sorry about that! I just updated the WGEN PAR.gsm file (on this article) to be compatible with GoldSim 14. You will need to install and use GoldSim 14 to use this model. Are you trying to run WGEN PAR?

    I used goldsim player 14, not plain goldsim 14. I assume goldsim needs a subscription? I tried GS Player 12.1 right after i posted above.

    I have redownloaded WGEN PAR.gsm, and now i see an error in GSP 14:

    "Loading model file WGEN PAR.gsm failed. An error occurred while loading global data."

    Is the problem simply that I am trying to run this in GS Player?

    Ah. I checked the comments in this link and see that I need true GoldSim, not GoldSim Player. https://support.goldsim.com/hc/en-us/articles/115012797188-WGEN-Weather-Simulator

    Damn, I was super hopeful about this when I saw the gs player title and .gsp extension in the screenshots. Unfortunately won't work in Trial version of GS due to the 50 element limit

    Bruce,

    I just uploaded Player versions of both WGEN and WGEN PAR models. Have a look and see if they work okay for you.

    Version 1.030

    1. Temperature output parameters on the dashboard are now converted to units of F or C, depending on the user's selection to facilitate copy-pasting values into WGEN input interface.

    Hi Jason, 

    A quick question: Is that a different hydrological year that could affect this model? 

    Looking forward to hearing you back. :)

    Peter,

    If you are asking if a different time period can be used for the input data for WGEN PAR, then the answer is certainly yes. But it is recommended that you use at least 20 years of daily recorded values in your input time series. Does this help?

    Hi Jason, 

    Thanks for clearing this for me. I actually made a mistake on rainfall correction. As I was dealing with S.I unit, I forgot to convert into US customary for the observed data. :)

    Version 1.045

    Model was updated to export all values  (including stats of observed TS records) to an Excel file called "WGEN PAR.xlsx" which is used directly as the input for WGEN.gsm.
