Fatal error Energy plus does not simulate

I’m trying to simulate various U values in windows in different facades, but it doesn’t run and shows fatal error even as the components are fine.

Hi @Anyone

  1. you have to make window geometry somewhere

  2. you can sort windows based on direction afterwards.

This is awesome! Thank you so much @Erikbeeren !

It stopped simulating daylight though (even though it’s exactly the same as before) shows absolute 0 or 1 in daylight simulation. How do I re-route it to work?
Also, I’d like to add shades to every direction (with something like this as ratios)

Sorry, I handled a bit to easy with HB workflows.
The workflow was not treated well in HB.
Windows where actualy not added.
Now it works.

Thank you so much! I also need to examine the shades on different facades and their impact on direct solar hours. How can I set that up on different facades and compute the hours?

The shades in your sketch you can just make by extruding the edges of the window. Just plain grasshopper.

Hi @Erikbeeren ,
I suggest this approach instead of the one in the file you attached. I believe is cleaner and efficient.

Hi @AbrahamYezioro could you please share the set up so I ensure what the other components are connected to?

Here you go.

Thanks a ton! Just to be clear- should I not reconnect them back in the loop so the windows with the shades are simulated as a honeybee object?

I did some cleaning but this is a messy file.You should do this yourself to be sure everything is well connected and working.
