The current workflow with 3phase components enables to generate blind schedules based on a logic for a sensor.
I am trying to use a blind schedule from energyplus (8760 values , 0 if blinds are down, 1 if blinds are up). When blinds are down I consider an xml with a VT of 0.1, when blinds are up an xml wih a VT of 0.8, I don’t model explicitly the blinds.
Is there a way to calculate annual metrics with the states of the window group in function of the shading schedule?
I have the same ideas with you . I think the most difficult part is the fourth for me:grinning:. I want to know if I can use a python file in the honeybee to combine the blind’s state. Could you give some example file about python file .
There are 10 states（0°~90° step 10°）. And I have created 10 xml file by WINDOW LBNL .I think I am one step closer to success. I also have some problems in the PYTHON component. I know it is not appropriate for you. Could you upload your gh file to me .
sorry to late to respond you . I refine my model according to your method today . In my model , I have only a room with a southern window(glass+blind+glass) . So I think I have one window group . I have 10 states of my window(1: angle0°,2:angle10°,3:angle20°…10:angle90°) and one static state of my window(0:static) . So I have these combinations which is (1),(2),(3),(4),(5)…(10) . Am I right？
I have not looked at your files yet, but just one quick tip. Although I had been reading a lot of things about states in the forum, I never fully understood how to use it until I took the default test samples of the DC recipe of Honeybee+ and simplified the geometry to 1 static window and 1 window group with 2 states.
You run the quick case and start playing with the states until you see it clearly.
I’ll be able to look at your files in the weekend…
