transmittance values for different transmittance schedule name

asked 2018-03-08 08:34:31 -0500

updated 2018-03-08 12:45:52 -0500


I create a shading surface to imitate tree shadow and I want to give the surface a transmittance value. I look at the document, it says" The name of a schedule of solar transmittance values from 0.0 to 1.0 for the shading surface". But in Openstudio, the choices of the name are: Large Office ClgSetp, Large Office Htgsetg, Medium Office ClgSetp, etc. image description

I wonder what are the transmittance values for each name? I cannot find this information anywhere.

Thanks for help in advance!

Sincerely, Meiwen Zhou

The schedules listed, are schedules that just happen to be in your model. Those schedules in particular have temperature values. You want to make a new fractional schedule (values between 0 and 1, with 0 being opaque, and 1 being transparent). You can name it anything you like.

The green button at the bottom left of the Schedules Tab view will make a new schedule.
