I have a model that consists of 92 windows that are equipped with automatic electric internal screens. I once used the EMS example of a simple window shading control to override each window seperately, but now i am looking for an EMS program that can control multiple windows at once so i don't need to set up an actuator on each window. Does anyone know a way to construct such an EMS program?

There is a similar question here. Essentially, if you're working in the IDF you need to define each actuator individually. DesignBuilder (an EnegyPlus interface) has a Scripting Module that makes this process easier by allowing you to loop over zones, surfaces, etc. to create EMS sensors and/or actuators. Does that help?
