Three Phase vs Five Phase

i am trying to run the simulations using three phase method and five phase method for an office building, can anyone explain me what is the prime difference between these methods.

Hi @Teja5zz, this question has been asked before and I advice not to use either 3 or 5 phase unless you really have to and understand how they work.

The main difference between the two is an extra calculation for direct sunlight (aka 5th Phase). This tutorial by @sarith is a great reference to educate yourself about multi-phase daylight simulation.

Also section 2.4 in Eleonora Brembilla’s dissertation.

Thank you very much.

I was searching for this but couldn’t find it ,Thank you very much for sharing this.
