Add transmittance to shade

Hi. I am trying to make shade made of glass and opaque material. i saw that i should input constant schedule to ep_trans_sch_ to add transmittance to shade. but my result is same as the one that i didn’t input anything in ep_trans_sch_. should I input different value to constant schedule? or are there another ways to apply transparency?

You need to modify your setting of schedule. The constant schedule is for 24 hour,it need input 24 values.Then you should create annual schedule for 8760 hour transmittance. You can try this method.


I tried and result was same. Are there anything should be changed?


you need to enter a value ranging from 0 to 1 in ep_trans_sch_ for 24 consecutive hours as the instantaneous transmission rate.
