Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] I want to convert for EnergyPlus weather data that you created for the ESP-r


Yes, you would need a *.DEF file with the same name as your data file.
I've created one and tested it on another data set with the same input format and it seems to work (see attached).  Please note that  there seems to be a mistake in your longitude, and that you're missing the WMO station number, elevation and time zone, which I've taken from my station listing for the whole world.

Thank you for Reply.

I tried to convert the clm formatted file using weather converter.

It is a file in the following format.

# ascii climate file from EA_JAP_Tokyo.dat
# defined in: EA AMeDAS climatec data Tokyo
# col 1: Diffuse solar on the horizontal (W/m**2)
# col 2: External dry bulb temperature (Tenths DEG.D)
# col 3: Direct normal solar intensity (W/m**2)
# col 4: Prevailling wind speed (Tenths m/s)
# col 5: Wind direction (clockwise deg from north)
# col 6: Relative humidity (Percent)
Tokyo # site name
1995 35.0 4.70 0 #year latitude long diff rad flag
1 365 #period (julian days)
* day 1 month 1

When I use the whather converter, do I need a def file?
