    I am doing the MPPT Simualtion on PSIM. I connecting irradiance block on the input of Solar Panel. In irradiance block, I gave the value of output of it as 1000.
    But when I am ruunning the simulation, error is showing as: IUnput node of solar panel is floating.
    Pkease help me to fix this error

    I haven't heard of an 'irradiance block' in PSIM, to use the solar module all you need to do is hook up a voltage source to the S and to the T terminal. S refers to light intensity in W/m2 and T is for temp in degrees C. So a 100V DC source on the 'S' terminal is a 100 w/m2 light intensity. The voltage sources don't have to be DC either you can have any arbitrary waveform on either terminal. There should be an example in the examples/renewable energy folder.
