we would love to use sunlightHoursAnalysis for the code compliance checking BUT we need to:
analysisPeriod must be 1st March from 7:15 to 16:45. Problem is that analysisPeriod toHour will accept only integer numbers from 1 to 24 thus it is not possible to define fractional time such as 7.25 to 16.75 despite the fact that timeStep can be down to 1 minute (timeStep = 60).
sunlighHoursAnalysis must be constrained in the way of excluding sun azimuth angle of 25o of the facade face. Or in other words any sun visible in the sector of 25o of the analysis surface plane must be disregarded (sun directions close to analysis surface parallel (till 25o) are disregarded).
We believe that this could be achieved by some changes to the source code. Is there anybody that would take on this consultancy job for us?
