I have been curious about this for quite a while, but what do you think is the most proper way to stimulate a partially open shade with the shade opening/close status vary by the hour?
My idea was to divide the entire window by two parts (shaded part and unshaded part); essentially to have two windows side by side.
While I am not aware of a way to implement shade control in Radiance, my solution was to have several full-year simulations each correspond to a different shade opening fraction and then post-process the results by picking the illuminance results from all of these full-year simulations based on shade status of each hour.
Am I doing it right through?
Thanks in advance
