Hello everyone,

In all of my results the data fields are way off of what I would expect (and in what is provided in the E+ results)image description, I've inserted a snipit.

It's not only the weather data, the area is way off of what is shown in the model and E+ too -it seems everthing is off.

I am desperately trying to migrate our engineering practice over to E+ and openstudio but having major growing pains with the loads and exporting into CBECC-COM.

Thanks, Dustin

Did this come from the OpenStudio/E+ model produced by CBECC-Com? Have you got a link to the model?

Did some testing with the current release. I did notice an error for daily delta temperature (converting from C to F instead of K to R), I'll file an issue for that, will be in next iteration installer. But other than that seems to show data as expected. I would be interested to know what version of OpenStudio made the report.

Here is a screenshot of where to inspect design days in the GUI. image description

As far as the issue with area, please describe what you are seeing in new post, there are a couple situations where the EnergyPlus area may not match the OpenStudio area, may want to check out this post before making a new one.

Version 1.10.0

Did you notice the wind speed?!

Yes 2000 miles per hour is a bit windy. What does EnergyPlus report for this, and what does your design day object look like. I'll add a screenshot above of where in the GUI to look for design day information.

This may be the result of running the IP units measure as discussed here
