EnergyPlus can't model holes in surfaces so you should just comment out or remove that one.

HI!

Thanks, I have solved this with your help.

I guess the problem was that the small one surface was not abble to discribe like Building Surface, so iIhad to make it like a fenestrion surface.

Now i get just one error:

** Severe  ** FenestrationSurface:Detailed="VOID SPACE SOUTH" has an opaque surface construction; it should have a window construction.

This space that i want to simulate is a void space, is like a windows but this one is open.

Would you give me some advice to do this.

Thanks

Now go fix this surface - VOID SPACE SOUTH:
** Warning ** Floor Tilt=90.0, much less than expected tilt of 180,
for Surface=VOID SPACE SOUTH, in Zone=ZONE_2

Then look at the 3rd vertex for the surface WALL EAST:
** Severe ** Suspected non-planar surface:"WALL EAST", Max "out of
line"=1.02916E-002 at Vertex # 3

Then go make your door or window a rectangle:
** Severe ** Suspected 4-sided but non-rectangular Window, Door or
GlassDoor:
** ~~~ ** Surface=WINDOWS SOUTH, Diagonal1=39.187, Diagonal2=39.245

Get it now?
