[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: glazing area opens per hour


I hit this same limitation for window shades. The approach I took was to discretize the window into 10 pieces. In that way, having the shade closed on one of the smaller windows was equivalent to have the shade closed by 10%. I'd imagine you could take the same approach for natural ventilation.
