[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: [validation] Angular dependence of window optical properties

Thank you very much, dr. Ooi! I read again the notes that were written during the monitoring activity. The temperature sensor (thermocouple) was on the internal window surface and it was shaded by a piece of aluminum foil attached on the external side, but not in the winter period that I'm considering for the validation. The aluminum foil was attached later...
Terrible mistake!
With Regards

How was the effect of radiation picked up by the measuring probe compensated? For example, if thermocouples had been used, you can see the effect of radiation by using another thermocouple backed by a black sponge.

At the beginning I was using the object WindowMaterial:SimpleGlazingSystem while now I'm trying with WindowMaterial:Glazing (field "Optical Data Type" = Spectral), but I had no improvements. In fact, there are still problems with the validation, in particular with the window surface temperature.

Since in winter and in summer the sun has different positions, I think that the problem concerns the angular dependence of window optical properties.
