Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Multiple sizing days

Hi Linda,

I see that you can do this, but the output summary reports each zone peak cooling load only on the day with the higher temperature.  Running the file with SizingPeriod:WeatherFileDays objects captured what I wanted.  Please see the attached example file for reference.  The Sun room should see a peak cooling load coincident with a low sun angle while the NoSun room should see a peak load coincident with peak outdoor temperatures (or peak internal loads).

Thanks for the help,

Should be fine.  Many do it.

To eliminate confusion you might change the actual dates.  And, of course, the names have to be different.

Is there any way to specify multiple cooling design days?  I would like to be able to test my building under a few different conditions:

1.  Typical peak day in mid summer
2.  Warm fall day with intense sun and low-angle sun
3.  Something in between 1 & 2
