Openstudio Calibration not Working

I have used the calibration tool in Openstudio but it seems to not be working for me now. The previous building I modelled had just electric energy consumption and I was able to just throw the bill information on the utilities tab with the run year and it worked fine.

For the building I am doing now it has three forms of power consumption I am calibrating with. I have the electrical, hot water, and chilled water energy values. Put them in the exact same way as before and with the proper run year. But after the Openstudio simulation is complete the Calibration tab is left empty while the other two tabs have the information in them.

Just wondering if any others have had this problem.

Did this just start happening in 1.10.0?

Can you expand on what you mean by "hot water, and chilled water energy values". What are the units for these measurements?

What program are you running your model in; OS App, PAT, Analysis Spreadsheet?

Running it in OpenStudio. All of the energy values are in kWh. So when I put the district heating and cooling values into the utility bills section I convert the values to kBtu. I believe this also happened to me when I was working with 1.9.5 as well.

Thanks. Also to confirm, the calibration measure runs and produces an output file, but that output file does not have any reports in it. Is that right?

Currently OpenStudio Calibration report supports Gas and Electricity, but not other fuels.

What is the failure mode for other fuels? It should still produce the output for electric and gas right?
