 I am not sure what you mean by your first question. As far as your
second question is concerned though I think you only need to change the
simulation time step. Note that you will leave the data interval
unchanged in Type9 (the data interval stays 1 hour). I am not sure that
I would set the simulation time step lower than about 1 minute however.
The algorithms that interpolate solar radiation data are appropriate for
timesteps between about 1 minute and 1 hour but they do an increasingly
poor job of predicting the split between beam and diffuse radiation at
timesteps less than one minute. 

Kind regards,
