How can I use EnergyPlus weather converter to split global radiation?

asked 2017-09-21 10:33:44 -0500

Good afternoon,

I would like to validate the building, but the EPW climate file I have only referred to climatic data of temperature, relative humidity, overall radiation. From what I perceive through the weather convert program it is possible to determine the diffuse horizontal and normal radiation.

In this way, I would like you to help me make a file to convert the radiation with the help of this program.

Please if you know how to solve this, it was very important to move forward with my master's thesis.
