How to model movable insulation on opaque surfaces


I am looking to use the “SurfaceControl: MovableInsulation” function from OpenStudio / EnergyPlus in a Honeybee model to simulate dynamic opaque insulation.

I see that Honeybee has the ability to have dynamic constructions for windows, I am wondering if any such function exists for opaque faces? And if not, any recommendations for how to go about modelling that in Honeybee.


Hey Peter,

Have you had any luck with this?
