Energy plus simulation error in honeybee-legacy

I am currently working in a model that has been created through an image. The model is then converted into honeybee zones and made ready for simulation. But I am having some errors and having hard time figuring what that error means. The errors are something like :

  1. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** Problem in interior solar distribution calculation (CHKBKS) , I have checked the geometry and it seems to be fine.
  1. Version: in IDF="=9.3.0" not the same as expected=“9.3”.
    Aren’t both the same??

Also I wanted to upload the grasshopper file but apparently I cannot.

Welcome to the forum Bhumika, Please go through the forum guidelines. For your, issue search for “Solar distribution” on the forum. This issue has been addressed several times before.

Thanks Devang, I found other discussions about " Solar distritbution" , that were kind of helpful.
I still don’t have any lead on my second error.

Hi @bhumika

One of your rooms is probably non convex.

You can solve this by changing the solar distribution.

Please share if the second error remains once you fix the CHKBKS error using the resources on this forum. What @Erikbeeren posted here is the root of your error and he has shared good resources to understand this issue. You can also search for “non-convex” on this forum.

Hi Erikbeeren,
This helped, the warnings are gone now and the energy use value also didn’t have a drastic change. Thanks a lot.

Hi Devang,
The error for CHKBKS was solved but I still have a warning for the version. It is not terminating the simulation but it still shows the warning.
