[Bldg-sim] eQuest model using actual weather data

Hi All,

I'm new to the industry and have been asked to run an energy model that
was constructed in eQuest with actual weather data for 2005 for the
purpose of comparing the model to the actual energy usage. Does anyone
have suggestions or resources for getting actual weather data into a
suitable (TMY or TMY2) format for eQuest? It seems that the TMY2 data
that eQuest uses is in binary and may not use all of the fields that the
TMY2 standard file layout includes. Any help is appreciated.

Have a pleasant day!

You'll find a number of thesis, papers, reports and routines for rolling your own TRY and TMY2 files on-line at the ESL listed in the publications.
