[EnergyPlus_Support] Weather file Convert

Dear Linda,
  Is it possible to add a custom format in weather convertor?If 
yes,then Energyplus may be very useful in our station;otherwise,the 
weather problem may be a fatal problem.
  I want to develop a program myself to convert it to *.epw.But i 
don't know how to calculate the remain variables by using these 
knowable variables.Can you give some suggestions?

  Appreciated your help.Thanks!
