Hi,

I am fairly new to both ladybug and honeybee. I have been trying to study the solar radiations falling on my geometry. I tried using the component radiation analysis in ladybug and could run it successfully and have some results. In order to get more accurate results I was suggested to move to honeybee which I have been trying to do but to begin with I made a test for a small rectangular geometry and tried to get results from both using ladybug and then using honeybee with grid based analysis.

The results I got were off by 3866 Wh. Could somebody explain to me why?

I am attaching some files below if someone can have a look and help me understand what is the matter would be appreciated.

All this pursuit for me to get to include the reflection from the ground as well!! How can I do that using this simple geometry as an example.

Thanks,

Anurag
