I have tried running up to four instances/simulations of EnergyPlus parallel on my 4 CPU cores, which works quite well.
As I have over a hundred different simulations to perform, I asked myself if it would be possible to run parallel batch simulations.
I believe it doesn't work by simply creating an *.EPG Group File, and running EnergyPlus as the EPlus.bat only reads in in.idf and in.epw.
Is there another way to start, e.g. two parallel batch file runs?
I remember that someone in that forum was talking about a perl script which could perform similar things.
Thanks for any help!
