simulate seasonal electric lighting consumption for lighting control options in DIVA

Hi Dear all,

I am trying to do a seasonal calculation in terms of electric lighting consumption for different lighting control options. The knowledge I know is that, in DIVA4Rhino the daysim report could only give annual energy cost data, and in Grasshopper, viper could run seasonal calculation but the occupancy schedule file I cannot change there.  

Right now I have two questions,

1, in DIVA4Rhino, I have my customized csv, where I should change to run a seasonal lighting consumption?

2, in grasshopper, how to customize occupancy schedule?

Many thanks!

Best,

Xue

Hi everyone,

Question No.2 is solved. but about question 1, is there any way to access the lighting control falsecolor diagram result given in Daysim report in the terms of separate data?

Many thanks,

Xue

Hi Xue,

Just to confirm, you want to use a custom occupancy file with DIVA's Grasshopper components?

Hi Alstan,

Yes, I originally wanted to use Viper in grasshopper to run lighting simulation only for the winter periods, but I don't know how to change the occupancy schedule file there. I still haven't solved this problem yet and will be grateful to know it still.

But to set up customized occupancy schedule, I use a component in HB for grasshopper eventually, that is a quicker way I could know, sorry this is not really related to DIVA4grasshopper.

And may I ask, since I mainly work on DIVA4Rhino, about the results process, whether it is possible to read deeper from the Daysim report, for example, the electric consumption data in month rather than the annual number?

Thank you,

Best,

Xueting
