Hello HB/LB Community,
I’m looking into creating a baseline peak load calculation that I can compare to results from other software and eventually look at the effect of shading. To do so, I’ve created a box with heat transfer just through the south wall / window.
I’ve seen Chris M’s shading study hydrashare file. However, one of the functionalities I’d like is to look at the design day and hr of the peak load per the “ReadEio” output component and the load breakdown (e.g. solar, conduction) from this component. At the moment, I only see how to read out the clg and htg peak loads and not the associated date/hr or breakdown.
Also, I’m curious as to how the design day file (ddy) is specified. Is it connected to the selected epw file? For example, Id like to confirm that the calculation is running through all possible hours, to capture a fall high solar load case) and not just the hottest dry bulb days, when looking at peak cooling load.
I’d be happy to hear your input if you have experience in these areas.
