Mismatch between Transmitted Solar rate and sum of solar radiation gains in EnergyPlus

I'm new to EnergyPlus modelling and I'm trying to analyse the hourly energy/load balances of my single room model.

In my energy balance, there is a mismatch between Zone Windows Total Transmitted Solar Radiation Rate W and the sum of all (Opaque surfaces) Surface Inside Face Solar Radiation Heat Gain Rate W (Transmission rate being higher)

Can you explain me the mismatch of this Heat balance? What heat load is missing to close the balance? Is it the sum of all Surface Window Shortwave from Zone Back Out Window Heat Transfer Rate of my windows?

Thanks in advance.
