Output Variable for Single Object in OS

asked 2015-08-19 11:54:39 -0500

updated 2017-08-05 08:08:54 -0500

Is it possible to add an output variable for a single object or node in OS, and not the entire list (*) of objects?

I would like to look at the information for a specific node (such as temperature, standard density volume flow rate, etc...) without reporting every single system node in the entire model.

It isn't possible to do this in the GUI right now but you can do this in a measure. You can use the setKeyValue method of OutputVariable to restrict the report to a single object. See the E+ documentation for more info.

Thanks for the tip! As a workaround I added the variable with the 'AddOutputVariable' measure and then went into the OSM text file and added the specific node in the Key Value field. I guess it's time to dig into the OS Measure Writing Guide...
