File Format: Internal Gains File (_intgain.csv)

This internal gains file is a DAYSIM output that allows annual daylight simulation programs to be directly coupled with thermal simulation programs such as EnergyPlus, DOE2.1 etc. The file contains hourly schedules of the status of all lighting and shading groups within a Daysim project.The file format is laregelt self-explanatory. The file is set using the keyword 'thermal simulation'.
