I need to simulate electrochromic window ,the build model is a office with 3 windows,every window controlled independently, so how to use the python script to realize this.
thank you!

You should model each window as a separate window group.

thank you @mostapha
can I use the blind_states input to control the EC windows’ states


#4

Modeling process for EC glass is no different from other glasses. You define each level of visible transmittance as a new state and the rest of the process is like any other dynamic glass.

@mostapha
dear mostapha, I define each Tv state like the following screenshot as you suggest.


And then I use the schedule IDs to control the states of each window,as the second picture shows.


The last image is the result .
So I wonder that if it is right of my model.
Thanks a lot.

@Fantasy, with this data I cannot tell if the results is correct but your workflow looks right to me.

@mostapha
Thank you for your reply,mostapha.The result is too strange because there is no blind on the office windows,it should not be stripy.It’s just my surmise.
