OpenStudio Results Monthly Overview - Demand Only

I am running OS 1.13 and finding the monthly overview section of OpenStudio Results is only showing peak demand, but it used to be for usage as well. It seems to only happen with the model I am currently working on. I can find usage in the E+ results, but it would be nice to have the chart for quick reference. Any suggestions?

Strange. I assume you are running the weather run period vs. just design days. Consumption should show first in monthly section for fuels with non 0 value, and then Peak demand. I just tested the public 1.13 installer and can't reproduce, this and have not seen it before. If you can't resolve it if you send the osm model I can test it here.

I have chased the issue down to the "Set Output Table To IP Units" measure. I haven't been able to figure out the issue within the script, though.

If the table was skipped for some reason you should have seen a message something like this. A ruby error will break the entire section but some tables may gracefully fail if a sql query doesn't turn out what is expected.

"One or more tables in #{display_name} section returned false and was skipped."

For 1.13.1 I've made an update that will prevent the standard report from running if the tabular EnergyPlus results are not in SI units. Here is an issue that shows what it will look like. The reason for this is that the results you will be wrong where unit conversion is required.

I do see "One or more tables in Model Summary section returned false and was skipped." in my OpenStudio Results. Thanks for the help.
