I'm using jePlus2.0 for parametric studies and using LCC as output for minimization.

I'm exploring run one hundred, or even thousand different *.idf (every *.idf are previous generated by Montecarlo approach, in order to combine different occupation scenarios) in jePLUS.

Having a lot of .idf to run in jePLUS2.0, there is any solution to run automatically every .idf, instead of manual configuration of each *.idf?

Is it possible to do that with jePLUS2.0?

Note: the "Parameter Table"(jePLUS2.0) and LLC output are the same for all *.idf files.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Rui,

If all your IDF files are in the same folder, just select all of them in the file selector dialogue using the Shift key or ctrl-A. You may also create a text file with a ".lst" extension and put in there all the idf file names, including the paths if they are in different folders, then select the list file instead of the idfs in jEPlus.

jEPlus v2.0's project file is in JSON format, which is quite easy to understand and manipulate. This gives you the third option to write the idf files to include in the project programmatically, and call jEPlus using its command-line interface...
