[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Help with simulation ...

Hello Jeremiah,

Thanks for your help but I cannot download your attached because of this:
"The Group's Email Attachment Archive setting is currently set to not archive attachments. Please contact the group moderator to enable this setting."
I would like you to send me that attached to my email please (bscr_14 at hotmail).

Thanks again.

Actually, I have heating coils for all the 49 floors (and even more than one per floor), so it would be really annoying and laborious to oversize each heating equipment. 
> In other words, what I normally do so far is to simulate once (it takes me about 6 hours because my model is kinda heavy), then resize all the cooling and heating equipments and simulate again (6 more hours) because this is the final result I need. Then, I have to set the orientation to 90º (it was 0º by default), simulate once and then resize and simulate again. And it's the same story with 180º and 270º. In conclusion, I would have to simulate 8 times, but I can't because I don't have much time.
> So, to sum up, what I want to know is if it's possible to deal with these two parameters (orientation of the building and resizing factors for heating and cooling equipments) so that I just set them (0º,90º,180º,270º and 1.15, 1.25) in EnergyPlus and get the final result for each orientation. Also, is it possible to simulate the four final configurations simultaneously?
