GenerativeComponents <-> EnergyPlus, connection (updated)

These days I have been updated my GC<->E+ connection. I fix some bugs to get more speed, and I get it. you will see in the video 10 different thermal analysis of the box in less than a minute. so I’m glad for that. Unfortunately Since E+ needs some seconds to generate the new files, the speed in the evaluation has a limit.

Results: The data that you are viewing.
Inside Air temperature Average : is the average of the inside Air temperature in the hottest and coldest day in Barcelona, this number should be the same all the time. 21 C degrees/hr.

Cooling Average : This is the Jules/hourly that you have to spend in this building to keep the temperature at 21 C degrees. during the hottest and coldest day in the year. (this number must be change)

Heating Average : This is the Jules/hourly that you have to spend in this building to keep the temperature at 21 C degrees. during the hottest and coldest day in the year. (this number must be change)

The settings of the buildings, like the type of glass in windows, the material of walls or even the weather are defined in the E+ file.

    Carlos, well done! Look great 🙂 Are you going to share the code? I’ve been trying to do similar thing but using Ecotect. Let’s keep in touch.
