In summary, the severe errors are related to an input field change for windows (FenestrationSurface:Detailed objects) in V9.0, which the IDF version update process you're using isn't catching correctly. From the posts I linked to, you may need to update the IDF in multiple steps (8.9 -> 9.1 then 9.1 -> 9.3) or one version at a time.

Thanks for your answer ! It seems to work when I convert the file step by step.

I still have an error when I launch the file :

* Severe * <root>[Branch] - Object contains properties that could not be validated using 'properties' or 'additionalProperties' constraints * Severe * <root>[Branch] - Object name is required and cannot be blank or whitespace * Fatal * Errors occurred on processing input file. Preceding condition(s) cause termination.

Can you help me with that ?

Are you using special characters (ñ, for example) in your model? EnergyPlus won't work with those. You can read this post for more information.
