Chromogenics

This release includes a new chromogenic product from SAGE Electrochromics, Inc.

When the WINDOW Glass library is updated from this release, the 5 different states of this electrochromic glass layer are imported individually into the WINDOW Glass Library. 

You can keep them in this state and calculate each state separately (for example, for NFRC, only the clear and fully tinted state are needed).

But if you want to see the states "grouped", you can delete the individual layers and import the grouped version from the WINDOW 7 Chromogenics database linked below.

For complete instructions about how to do this, see this Knowledge Base article: Chromogenic Layers -- Update the Glass Library after updating from the IGDB 

WINDOW 7 Chromogenics Database.zip -- this zip file contains a separate database for WINDOW 7.4 and 7.6, with all the chromogenics in the IGDB "grouped"

Energy Plus IDF files
 

The ZIP file linked above (IGDB-59-IDF.zip, which is shown when you have logged in to your account) with the Energy Plus IDF files has the following files in it:

  • IGDB-59-Material.IDF
    This file contains an Energy Plus "WindowMaterial:Glazing" definition, which references the spectral data from the 2nd file, for each glass layer in the IGDB
  • IGDB-59-SpectralData.IDF
    This file contains an Energy Plus "MaterialProperty:GlazingSpectralData" definition (referenced from the Material) for each glass layer in the IGDB
    This file does not have averaged spectral data, only the detailed spectral data by wavelength.

You need to have both the WindowMaterial:Glazing and the MaterialProperty:GlazingSpectralData definition for each glass layer used in an Energy Plus input file.
