I am facing problem to get cooling load for difference Window to Wall Ratio(WWR). When I am changing WWR for the same model there is no change in cooling load.I found the same cooling load for 5% or 80% and above. Now need to know how can I solve this problem? I am using Open Studio (1.14.0) , Sketch Up make(2016), Energy Plus(8.6) version.

Which value are your looking at exactly? Do you have absolutely the same value? What about total EUI? Can you show at least a picture of your model?

I am looking for changing my cooling load value with changing WWR. Theoretically, for 5% window to wall ratio the cooling load is not same with the cooling load for 20% WWR. But in my model I found the almost same value of cooling load. Total EUI for 5% WWR = 1866.29 kBTU/ft^2 and for 20% WWR = 1853.07 kBTU/ft^2, which is almost similar. I can show my model in your email. gravatar ( 2019-01-05 00:32:12 -0600 )edit
