The measure is in a bit of a flux right now as we are porting some of the equest methods into a gem format. However that will not work until the gem is in the next version of OpenStudio. I will update this thread once I have posted something on the BCL. On a side note, once this gem is placed in the OS ecosystem, it will be possible to create, in a limited capacity, DOE2.x measures using the OpenStudio SDK.

The measure - BTAP eQuest Converter - is in a bit of a flux right now as we are porting some of the equest methods into a gem format. However that will not work until the gem is in the next version of OpenStudio. I will update this thread once I have posted something on the BCL. On a side note, once this gem is placed in the OS ecosystem, it will be possible to create, in a limited capacity, DOE2.x measures using the OpenStudio SDK.

This measure is a stand-alone implementation using BTAP's equest module. Until BTAP is gemified, this is to be conisdered a hard fork of that work.

This may or may not work as this is dependent on the complexity of your model. This was created using eQuest 3.62 as the basis. So future versions may not work with this script. YMMV greatly.

The measure - BTAP eQuest Converter - is in a bit of a flux right now as we are porting some of the equest methods into a gem format. However that will not work until the gem is contained in the next version of OpenStudio. I will update following repository. Users should be able to download or git clone from this thread once I have posted something repository. This was last used successfully on the BCL. On a side note, once this gem is placed in the OS ecosystem, it will be possible to create, in a limited capacity, DOE2.x measures using the OpenStudio SDK.v2.6.0

While this is not a eQ->E+ this is a eQ to OpenStudio geometry (surfaces, subsurfaces, space, zone) converter.

Known Issues: The converter seems to have problems with special characters (accented French and Spanish characters for example). The file encoding in Ruby and eQuest make this cause some issues. Please ensure your model does not contain special characters in your model.
