EMSThermochromicWindow AND ThermochromicWindow in examples files, each one give different results so, which is the best way to add Thermochromic window to my modelling with EMS or with window material glazingGroup thermochromic ???

by using EMS for Switchable windows, it doesn't calculate the cooling loads for the zones .. Any one know WHY???

the EMS modelling approach can be considered a suitable alternative to the EnergyPlus built-in model, and it could also be successfully extended to other dynamic glazing technologies that do not have a built-in model available in EnergyPlus, provided that an accurate thermo-optical characterisation of the dynamic glazing is available.
