Can you add several run periods to OpenStudio?

I'd like to add for example two run periods: one week in January and one week in July.

I don't think it's possible right now considering there's only model.runPeriod apparently, but maybe I overlooked something? Is there a workaround?

You could write an EnergyPlus measure, but definitely a use at your own risk. This may wreak havoc with the standard reporting in OS app, PAT.

Another solution if you want to run multiple runPeriods is to create a parametric sweep on seed model, where a measure changes the RunPeriod for each design alternative.
