[TRNSYS-users] Type 567 for windows

   I do not think that Type567 can be coupled with a window model 
(especially not with the Type56 window model since that model relies on 
an external data file generated by Window5 and is built into the 
building model. I think Type567 would have to be redeveloped as a 
combined PV/window model. Short of developing a model I think the best 
you would be able to do is to leave the thermal aspect of the window and 
the electrical aspect of the window separate. Model the thermal 
characteristics as best you can in Type56/Window5. I am also not certain 
whether the Type94 or Type194 PV models have ever been tested to see if 
they can be used to simulate the performance of PV that is integrated 
with a window that also transmits visual light.
Kind regards,
