I am using colibri iterations remotefly to automatically run my energy simulations through all combinations of materials properties to receive outputs of: kWh/m2 , kWh and PMV calculations. My attached model “Working Simulation_test_new.gh” runs fine however i am using the mass addition component to receive one total value per output per simulation.
However i believe this is skewing my results as it is the sum of all hours of the day. My second model “Working Simulation_test_new_hourlyresults.gh” is an attempt to run iterative simulations but receive all 8760 data points (hourly timestep) per iteration for the year long energy consumption so that I can sift through the data myself.
Is there a way to automatically write these results with an hourly timestep to an excel file for each iteration similarly to how it works when i use the mass addition component?
If i have the time i’ll try to look at your files.
But … i will consider to use the E+ simulation files results to get the data you are asking for. If you simulated hourly you get a file (look at the output folder) with all 8760 results. Maybe you can take it from there instead of recording such a big amount of data (assuming you have many iterations).
Yes. But …
As i see the results are in Joules. You’ll need to convert to kWh and divide by your area to get per sqm.
I don’t remember right now if you can add an output string to have results in kWh, but the conversion is not a big deal.
You can. Here, the slider is just an example. You can connect one the sliders that you use for colibri iterations. You can use multiple sliders as well. If you zoom in on the inputs of the concatenate component, you’ll see that you can add more inputs.
Yes I understand the concatenate. But with that slider connected will it automatically iterate the file name? Or to work does it need to be put through a separate iteration component to that of my material property iterator?
