Thermochromic Glass simulation

Postby Juzer_Kothari » Fri Jul 05, 2019 7:19 am

We are about to do the Day lighting & Energy simulation with the Dynamic VLT glass like thermochromic glass from saint gobain.
From that we observed that thermochromic glass shows like three pans are going to act like glazing for the particular project. As per the client requirement thermochromic pane must have 40 bands to get even more clarity of simulation results. But design builder looks like it has only 10 bands for the each panes.
How can we increase the number of bands for the panes from 10 to 40?
A separate energy plus software makes this as possible, My question is energy plus is the only way to do the these kind of analysis or we can do the same analysis by Design builder?

Please feel free discuss about this with us. This is very helpful for future glazing technology usage in designbuilder..
