Solar Radiation Calculation for Specific Periods

Post by lightup123 » Wed May 09, 2012 11:39 pm

I would like to model the solar gain through a window glass for the heating or cooling period. The period can change depending on the building insulation.

Can you add an option for start and end date ( or even start and end hours) of the solar radiation per m2 and calculate the radiation for that time period?
It would also be great if the solar radiation for that period could be attached the text result to an object eg. a window or a glass object.
This would be a tremendous help to calculate shading situations - solar gains.

Thanks, Wolfgang

So same calc, but being able to 'bookend' the times at which calculations are performed?
