Import stat

Component Index > Ladybug > 0 | Ladybug > Import stat

Use this component to import climate data found in the .stat file that downloads with the .epw file (in the same .zip folder).
Sepcifcally, this allows you to import the ASHRAE and Koppen climate zones as well as design temperatures representing the temperature extremes of the climate that should be used to design and size heating and cooling systems.
Lastly, this component brings in the typical and extreme weeks of the year as ladybug analysis periods that can be plugged into the other ladybug components.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_statFile_statFileA .stat file path on your system from the Open STAT file component (or typed out as a string).Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
outreadMe!...String
ashraeClimateZoneashraeClimateZoneThe estimated ASHRAE climate zone of the STAT file. ASHRAE climate zones are frequently used to make suggestions for heating and cooling systems and correspond to recommendations for insulation levels of a building. For more information, see this pdf: https://www.ashrae.org/File%20Library/docLib/Public/20081111_CZTables.pdfGoo
koppenClimateZonekoppenClimateZoneThe estimated Koppen climate zone of the STAT file. The Koppen climate classification is the most widely used climate classification system and is based on the concept that native vegetation is the best expression of climate. Thus, Koppen climate zones combine average annual and monthly temperatures, precipitation, and the seasonality of precipitation. For more information, see the wikipendia page on Koppen climate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6ppen_climate_classification.Goo
