Hi. I need a manual or guidelines to set schedule in open studio.

There are many sentences about which I would like to know the definition or the reference. For example: which is the definition of " large office" ? and again, what does "189.1-2009 office breakroom CZ1 - 3 schedule set" mean? is "189.1-2009" the reference low? What does "CZ1 - 3 " mean?

So, I need something that can help me to understand how setting openstudio. Ho cercato nel sito web Openstudio, ma ho trovato solo un breve tutorial.

can you help me?

Thans for your answers

Hi Antop,

I don't really have time to give a detailed explanation on schedules, but I can explain the schedule set name.

189.1 refers to the ASHRAE 189.1 standard, and 2009 refers to the version of the standard - in this case 2009. Office - Breakroom is the space type name. So if you were creating a model conforming to ASHRAE 189.1, and needed to have a breakroom space type for one of your thermal zones, you would use this.

The last part of the name, CZ1-3 refers to the ASHRAE climate zone in which your building is being modeled. In this case, it would be in Climate Zones 1 to 3.
