Hey, I have measured weather data (10min resolution) and I want to simulate in 2-min steps. My question: I heard that it should be possible to add different time-steps for weather data. Must the simulation-step size and the input-weather step size equal? Or is it possible to have 10min resolution input and 2 output?

Thanks for your help

The weather interpolation routines inside EnergyPlus are only setup for one-hour timesteps in the weather data. You would have to create a two-minute timestep weather data file from the ten-minute data.
