I want to add setpoint manager minimum humidity to my HVAC loop, but when I click on that in the library, nothing appears. That problem doesn't happen with other setpoints. It seems like setpoint manager minimum humidity is not available. However, it is essential for my loop, otherwise fatal error appears.

They may have forgotten to add the object to the library or not want you to use it yet. If you desperately need it you drop these chunks into a custom measure. It will add a SetpointManagerSingleZoneHumidityMinimum to a node that you specify.


# the name of the node to add the setpoint manager to
nodeName = OpenStudio::Ruleset::OSArgument.makeStringArgument("nodeName", true)
nodeName.setDisplayName("Existing Node Name")
nodeName.setDescription("Name of node to add 'Humidity Minimum Setpoint Manager' to.")
args << nodeName


# assign the user input node name to a variable
nodeName = runner.getStringArgumentValue("nodeName", user_arguments)

# grab the node that has the specified name
node = model.getNodeByName(nodeName).get

# create a new setpoint manager and assign it to the desired node
newSetpointManager =
