In the PV Analyzer software, the user can enter wire gauge and length so that the effects of wire can be included in the model calculations. This feature does not take wire temperature into account because it is difficult to determine the temperature inside the conduit.   This feature assumes room temperature. To simulate the effects of temperature in the wire, you can increase/decrease wire length accordingly. (Electrical conductivity decreases with increasing temperature.)
