Read Annual Daylight Results I [Standard Daysim Results]

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Ill Files Address_illFilesAddressList of .ill filesGoo
Test Points_testPointsList of 3d PointsGoo
Pts VectorsptsVectors_Script variable readDSResultsGoo
Occupancy FilesoccupancyFiles_Address to a Daysim occupancy file. You can find some example in \Daysim\occ. Use Honeybee Occupancy Generator to generate a custom occupancy file. You can also use EnergyPlus Schedules directly. If the schedule is using continuous values any value larger than .2 will be considered as occupied.Goo
DLAIllum Thresholds_DLAIllumThresholds_Illuminance threshold for Daylight Autonomy calculation in lux. Default is set to 300 lux.Goo
Lighting Control GroupslightingControlGroups_Daysim lighting control groups. Daysim can model up to 10 lighting control groups together. Default is > cntrlType = 4, lightingPower = 250, lightingSetpoint = 300, ballastLossFactor = 20, standbyPower = 3, delayTime = 5Goo
SHDGroup I SensorsSHDGroupI_Sensors_Senors for dhading group I. Use shadingGroupSensors component to prepare the inputsGoo
SHDGroup II SensorsSHDGroupII_Sensors_Senors for dhading group II. Use shadingGroupSensors component to prepare the inputsGoo
Run It_runItset to True to run the analysisGoo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
DLADLADaylight Autonomy > Percentage of the time during the active occupancy hours that the test point receives more daylight than the illuminance threshold.Goo
UDLI Less 100UDLI_Less_100Useful Daylight illuminance > Percentage of time during the active occupancy hours that the test point receives less than 100 lux.Goo
UDLI 100 2000UDLI_100_2000Useful Daylight illuminance > Percentage of time during the active occupancy hours that the test point receives between 100 and 2000 lux.Goo
UDLI More 2000UDLI_More_2000Useful Daylight illuminance > Percentage of time during the active occupancy hours that the test point receives more than 2000 lux.Goo
CDACDAContinuous Daylight Autonomy > Similar to Daylight Autonomy except that the point receives illuminaceLevel/illuminace threshold for hours that illuminance level is less than the threshold.Goo
S DAsDASpatial Daylight Autonomy > sDA is the percent of analysis points across the analysis area that meet or exceed _DLAIllumThresholds value (set to 300 lux for LEED) for at least 50% of the analysis period. Honeybee doesn't consider the effect of dynamic blinds in calculating sDA.Goo
