Read EP Surface Result

Component Index > Honeybee > 10 | Energy | Energy > Read EP Surface Result

This component reads the results of an EnergyPlus simulation from the WriteIDF Component or any EnergyPlus result .csv file address. Note that, if you use this component without the WriteIDF component, you should make sure that a corresponding .eio file is next to your .csv file at the input address that you specify.
This component reads only the results related to surfaces. For results related to zones, you should use the "Honeybee_Read EP Result" component.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_resultFileAddress_resultFileAddressThe result file address that comes out of the WriteIDF component.Goo
normBySrfArea_normBySrfArea_Set to 'True' to normalize all surface energy data by the area of the suraces (note that the resulting units will be kWh/m2 as EnergyPlus runs in the metric system). The default is set to "False."Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
surfaceIndoorTempsurfaceIndoorTempThe indoor surface temperature of each surface (degrees Celcius).Goo
surfaceOutdoorTempsurfaceOutdoorTempThe outdoor surface temperature of each surface (degrees Celcius).Goo
surfaceEnergyFlowsurfaceEnergyFlowThe heat loss (negative) or heat gain (positive) through each building surfaces (kWh).Goo
opaqueEnergyFlowopaqueEnergyFlowThe heat loss (negative) or heat gain (positive) through each building opaque surface (kWh).Goo
glazEnergyFlowglazEnergyFlowThe heat loss (negative) or heat gain (positive) through each building glazing surface (kWh). Note that the value here includes both solar gains and conduction losses/gains.Goo
windowTotalSolarEnergywindowTotalSolarEnergyThe total solar energy transmitted through each of the glazing surfaces to the zone (kWh).Goo
windowBeamEnergywindowBeamEnergyThe total direct solar beam energy transmitted through each of the glazing surfaces to the zone (kWh).Goo
windowDiffEnergywindowDiffEnergyThe total diffuse solar energy transmitted through each of the glazing surfaces to the zone (kWh).Goo
windowTransmissivitywindowTransmissivityThe hourly transmissivity of the exterior windows of the model. This data is needed to align a comfort map with an energy model possessing shades.Goo
otherSurfaceDataotherSurfaceDataOther surface data that is in the result file (in no particular order). Note that this data cannot be normalized by floor area as the component does not know if it can be normalized.Goo
