Microclimate Map Analysis

Component Index > Honeybee > 10 | Energy | Energy > Microclimate Map Analysis

Use this component runs an annual comfort assessment off of EnergyPlus results and write all values into csv files.
The results in these files can be used for creating indoor comfort maps.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_comfAnalysisRecipe_comfAnalysisRecipeA comfort analysis recipe out of one of the comfort recipe component.Goo
==========================...Goo
fileName_fileName_An optional file name for the result files as a string.Goo
workingDir_workingDir_An optional working directory on your system. Default is set to C:\LadybugGoo
==========================Script variable AdaptIndoorComfAnalysisGoo
analysisPeriodOrHOY_analysisPeriodOrHOY_An analysis period from the 'Ladybug Analysis Period' component or an hour of the analysis between 1 and 8760 for which you want to conduct the analysis. If no value is connected here, the component will run for only noon on the winter solstice. A single HOY is used by default as longer analysis periods can take a very long time.Goo
==========================Script variable AdaptIndoorComfAnalysisGoo
writeResultFile_writeResultFile_Set to 1 or 'True' to have the component write all results into CSV result files and set to 0 or 'False' to not have the component write these files. The default is set to 'True' as these simulations can be long and you usually want a copy of your results. You may want to set it to 'False' if you are just scrolling through key hours and want the fastest run possible. Set to 2 if you want the component to only write the results of the last two matrices (comfort results and degFromTarget).Goo
parallel_parallel_Set to "True" to run the component using multiple CPUs. This can dramatically decrease calculation time but can interfere with other intense computational processes that might be running on your machine. For this reason, the default is set to 'False.'Goo
_runIt_runItSet boolean to "True" to run the component and generate files for an annual indoor comfort assessment.Goo
