Shading Control

Hello everyone!

I am using shading devices in a building and I would like to create a shading control based on the solar radiation to run an energy simulation. I only found components to control the shading device using illuminance. Does anyone have any ideas how to do this? Any examples files?

Thanks in advance!

Check the EPWindowShades component.
There see the shadeCntrlType_ input. You need to set it to 2 or 3.

Hello, Abraham! Thanks for the reply.
I would like to do a dynamic simulation and would like to change the shading angles more than just on and off.
I would like the angles to vary between 90 and 0 degrees, depending on the radiation. Do you know if it is possible?
