No it doesn't some of the funtional libraries (If I rememeber correct the solar library) do have functions for converting the GMT time from time source to local time.

Hello
Thank you for your answer. Do you mean "zSOLAR_DAYFRAC_TO_LOCAL_HR" from "PS562-SOLAR\SolarNREL_AC500" library?
How can I use it to convert timestamp to local one? My PC ( as SNTP server) sends local timestamp to AC500 CPU, How does CPU (as client) return GMT timestamp?!
Thank you

SNTP is allways gmt. I'm not sure about the library I've seen it in the help files while searching for function to use local time in the AC500.
