Non-planar facade energy simulation

#1

Hello everyone,
I am working on daylight and energy simulation of non-planar façade which is a combination of PV panel and glass. I have to compare the energy consumption (heating, cooling, lighting) and energy generation (electricity by the PV panel) of different configurations of non-planar façade. I have started with a simplest model.
Attached you can find the picture of the simple model of non-planar façade. I started with a box and deconstructed façade surface and made it non-planar. Then two closed zones are created and I then use HB-SolveAdjc, but the Energy Simulation gives a Fatal Error.

  1. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** GetSurfaceData: Zone has no surfaces, Zone=ZONE1
  2. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** GetSurfaceData: Zone has no surfaces, Zone=ZONE2
  3. The simulation has failed because of this fatal error:
    ** Fatal ** GetSurfaceData: Errors discovered, program terminates.
    Can someone help me with it?

Thanks to everybody for your help.

@Nikou Could you upload your Rhino model and Grasshooper definition?

@minggangyin thanks for your reply. I try to upload my file but It is not possible. I get the message " New users can not upload attachments". Anyone can help?!

@Nikou The googledrive link is not able to download. So I did a demo according to your demand.
Here is the screenshot of openstudio model and grasshooper definition.
