Hi, everyone. I've had some problems in Energyplus shading control setting. How can I simulated blinds in the heating season, simulated Interior Shade during the cooling season? Thanks. The software setup seems to set only one pattern, blind or shade, throughout the year.Thanks.

The easiest way would be to just make separate control/availability schedules for each based on the season. If you want to have more control then just defining manually what the heating and cooling season are, you could add in some EMS controllers with logic based on the outdoor conditions, solar gains, etc.
