Hello, I'm using EnergyPlus v.8.7 and I'm trying to control the shading differently according to different situations (time of day): -if there is no people in the house I want them to be closed (shading on) - if there is people in the house I want them to be controlled by one of the options provided (OnNightAndOnDayIfCoolingAndHighSolarOnWindow)

Does anyone know how can I accomplish this? Do I have to program EMS actuators for each window? I want all of them to be controlled the same way so I think there is maybe an easier solution. Can't 2 shading controls be assigned to each window?

Thanks!

Hello, I'm using kiva foundation model for determining ground heat transfer in E+. I'm setting the floor's inside convection coefficient value in SurfaceProperty:ConvectionCoefficient object. However, I noticed that the simulation is not using this value I set. Does this have something to do with Kiva foundation model? Thank you

Hi! Thanks for the answer, that's my problem then. I'm using version 8.7 because I'm modelling the geometry with Euclid
