I am just wondering if someone could clarify how the overheating user interface works in UMI, or point me towards the documentation as I couldn't find it when I looked. I am just confused about how to operate it and what it gives me back.
You have the max comfortable temperature (pretty self explanatory), which I am assuming is the threshold for overheating if internal temps rise above that.
Next there is the Affected Floor area, and this is the part that is confusing me. Is it saying how many hours in a year that an area of this size anywhere in the building overheats?
I imagine it is implemented this way since there are no actual thermal zones defined in the building like a typical model, but how then would you make an accurate assessment of overheating in UMI that you could compare to a "typical" simulation output?
Thanks for your help!
