Hello Everyone, @devang @sarith @mostapha @chris @AbrahamYezioro @rxs5160 @Mathiassn
I am running a simple daylighting simulation for a box model with three windows in HB[+] using HoneybeePlus_DC Grid-based Daylight Recipe.
The geometry details are as follows:
- I have assigned all three windows in one single window group.
- This window group has two different states.
a) Base State  - Having windows with VLT 0.5
b) State 1  - Having windows with VLT 0.5 + Exterior Shade surfaces @60 degree inclination (Opaque) with 0.5 reflectance.
This is the image of my 3D-Model
Now, when I run the simulation, It is running smoothly without having any errors. But I am wondering that why I am getting almost the same Daylight Autonomy values for both the above-mentioned window states. I am attaching the results of the simulation.
This is the result for “Base State  - Having windows with VLT 0.5”.
This one is for "State 1  - Having windows with VLT 0.5 + Exterior Shade surfaces (Opaque) with 0.5 reflectance."
Kindly check for possible mistakes. Or is there any other way of adding HB_Surfaces in window states? Kindly suggest.
I am attaching the grasshopper file for your reference.
