[Equest-users] Frame Data in eQUEST from a WINDOW5 file

Hello all,

First and foremost, happy Cinco de Mayo! I have a question about how eQUEST imports WINDOW5 files and I am hoping the group can provide some guidance:

 Is there a way for eQUEST to import the frame data from a WINDOW5 report, or does the user need to separately change the frame conductance?

I imported two WINDOW5 files (same glass, different frame conductance) into eQUEST fine and set up a parametric run (component type: window; category: basic specs; keyword: glass type; Value: 'imported W5 file'). The problem is that the resulting energy consumption was the same.

I've attached the two WINDOW5 files and a very simplified eQUEST model that shows how I set up my parametric runs. Regarding the W5 files: on line 9 it gives the frame conductance in metric units.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind regards,
Alex Krickx
