Hi everyone!

I'm trying to settle an Energy Plus Weather file for a Ladybug and Honeybee analysis on Grasshopper of a habitat on the Moon. I took the data from scientific literature and filled a hourly CSV file that I'd like to convert in an EPW. The climate I'm talking about is the one of an harsh environment, like -238°C of Dry Bulb Temp. I tried to use the Weather converter application in the EnergyPlus installation folder, but it was unsuccessful, as well as for Elements software. Probably because of the unconventional, out-of-range data I need to work with.

Does anyone have any idea about how to obtain an EPW with these characteristics? Thanks a lot in advance!!

@Cosimothis post is very similar. It didn't have an answer for modifying weather in extraterrestrial simulations, but it also notes that lots of other EnergyPlus equations and algorithms would need to be altered (solar gains, day length, etc.).

Thanks @Aaron Boranian for your reply. Unfortunately seems I'll need to find another way to perform my simulations in an extreme environment. Thanks a lot!
