Thanks for your clarification. It make sense for building to align with its plan north.

2021-05-06 11:52:53 -0600 commented answer Open Studio: Setting North Orientation

May I ask for further clarifications? So the true north/real north will always be the direction of the solid green line,

Can EnergyPlus output the U-value of interior wall/floor/ceiling?

I looked up the energyplus Table output file, only exterior envelope were shown.

If you have experience about this, please advice. Your suggestion is really appreciated.

Thanks !

2017-07-03 03:00:57 -0600 marked best answer How can I use energyplus weather converter to split global radiation in to direct normal and diffuse horizontal radiation

I'm trying to validate a building model by take into account the real weather situation. A onsite weather station had been installed.

But for solar radiation data,only global(total) radiation is available. From the auxiliary programs document,weather converter program, it seems the weather converter can use Perez split model to split the global into direct normal and diffuse horizontal values.

My questions is how can this be done using the weather converter? I do not find much useful related information yet.

If you had experience about this or done similar staffs before. Your suggestion is really appreciated.
