Are these two separate questions? I can look into the zone report unit test. As far as EMS, is there a specific use case you have in mind? I'll looking for some example EMS measure code tonight, we have some internally but nothing posted to BCL yet.

If your EMS use case doesn't require changes to objects generated by OpenStudio you can use this simple measure to drop in content from a pre-generated IDF that you provide.

Yes, there are 2 question about zone_report measure. I think zone report measure need to be updated so that it can use in standard report because it 's pretty useful for sizing and load predicting.

I think the best publicly-available source of example EMS measures is currently the OpenStudio-PTool repository. Design documents describing the measures and how they work are here, and you can always refer to the EMS Application Guide to reference how the EMS code works.

There should be design docs in that repo that describe the design intent, modeling approach, and test cases. I know those docs exist, and if they're not in the repo I'll make sure they get there.
