I am experiencing very long ENERGY PLUS annual analysis times for basic EUI. My mass is approximately 422 in length by 200 ft width. It takes 5 minutes to just calculate one zone with no windows. I tried adding windows and after 30 minutes it still had not completed. There is 127 surfaces on this mass. (with 4 surfaces it calculates immediately).
I have other zones I need to add which would be over 800 surfaces. Sefaira takes about 8 minutes to do everything, but I want to move away from it. I feel like there should be a solution for this as it is not very useful for parametric design if the simulation takes so long.
