I am using Energy plus+Jeplus+Designbuilder to optimize WWr in mid-rise building but I don`t know how could I do it? Is it possible to find this value for many windows in this building?

Any references will be appreciated.

not sure i understand what you are asking exactly. in a typical energyplus run you can find the WWR in the html file.

for Jeplus, if you are using it to setup multiple variations of WWR and run accordingly, you will need to manually create the alternative geometries and use an if statement to run each and report accordingly.

a quick way to do the alterations to the geometry is to use openstudio native scripts to apply a ratio to windows in your model.
