openstudio.energyplus.ForwardTranslator: OS_ProgramControl is not currently translated

asked 2015-11-13 07:00:44 -0500

updated 2015-11-13 07:04:05 -0500

In OpenStudio 1.9.2 or 1.9.3, if I load a model in model in iteractive ruby, and then forward translate it, I get a warning.

In [1]: ft =
        workspace = ft.translateModel(model)

Out[1]: [openstudio.energyplus.ForwardTranslator] <0> OS_ProgramControl is not currently translated

What does it mean? Can I safely ignore this?

You can safely ignore this.

OS:ProgramControl only contains a "Number of Threads Allowed", which isn't been used by EnergyPlus anyways.

Actually EnergyPlus can take this input it's just that only certain portions of the simulation can be multi-threaded.

Ah, good point. Still, it's not a big deal

@macumber The code for multi-threading is no longer in EnergyPlus (since 8.x, I forget). So while EnergyPlus might accept this input, it does not do anything.
