Hey guys,

I have some questions regarding the convertion of weather data. I want to convert test reference years into the epw format. Well I know that at I can find the converted data but I would like to know how I can convert such data on myself.

I would like to know the workflow and steps regarding the convertion. Is there any good tutorial? I never did something like that before and don't know where and how to start. Already checked the auxiliary programs documentation. Any help or tip is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Other than using the EnergyPlus Weather Converter program with a def file you should build (which shouldn't be too hard to do) You can try the CCWeatherGen which is aimed at Climate Change Weather File Generating for the UK. From taking a brief look at the manual it seems that you can generate also ‘unmorphed’ data.

Another option to edit weather data more freely, try with some datasheets to edit and convert the data to .epw, you could find them use words datasheet convert epw
