Model Parametrization

How can I import own c6b or epw files into THERAKLES?

Copy the files into the user-database-directory (see reference documentation). On Windows, this is usually

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\IBK\Therakles\DB_climate

How can I convert CCD files to c6b files?

There is a tool available on bauklimatik-dresden.de inside the THERAKLES download section called CCMEditor which is used for creating c6b files.

Mind that in c6b Direct Radiation is "Normal radiation" (as in epw files), whereas old CCD files used "Direct radiation on horizontal plane".

Best way to create a climate data file for Brussels is to create a subdirectory, for example named "Brussels" and copy/create the following CCD files within this directory:

Temperature.ccd
RelativeHumidity.ccd
DirectRadiation.ccd
DiffuseRadiation.ccd
WindDirection.ccd
WindVelocity.ccd
SkyRadiation.ccd
TotalPressure.ccd
VerticalRain.ccd

If a file is missing, the importer will just set 0 for all values.

Then, within CCMEditor, select "File->Import CCD Directory". In the dialog, specify longitude and latitude of Brussels (make sure not to swap them during input...

After import, you should see the hourly data inside the table (for checking you can Select+Copy them over to LibreOffice:Calc or Excel). The importer also converts horizontal radiation to normal radiation.

Then save the file as c6b file and copy it to your user-climate-directory, as described above.

Definition of climate data files for temperatures of neighboring zones

If a neighboring zone shall have a time-dependent temperature instead of a constant temperature, you can enter in the user interface the file path to a CCD file (see file reference for format description) instead of a temperature. Relative paths are interpreted as relative to the project file path.
