Dear all,

I'm modelling an airflow window that is commercially available. This window has multiple flow modes according to season. However, it seems that the EnergyPlus object only allows one flow mode per window, and schedules only switch it on or off during the year.

What would be the procedure to model different flow modes applied to the same window? The program crashes if we attempt to use two or more objects referencing the same window.

It is not possible. The best option I can think of would be to run multiple simulations, each with a different flow mode and then combine selected seasons from each simulation to make a full year.

You can request this as a new feature by posting a new EnergyPlus issue and use the "NewFeatureRequest" label.
