Producing an .edd output file

asked 2014-12-18 09:08:07 -0500

updated 2015-04-13 13:44:51 -0500

I'm reading through the EMS documentation and I see that I need to include some EMS objects before the .edd file (which tells me what EMS objects are available) is produced. Is this as chicken-and-egg as it sounds or have I missed some higher level EMS object I can add?

I've added this part at the end of the file, but what other object should I add as a starter that will allow the .edd to be produced?

Output:EnergyManagementSystem,
    Verbose,    ! Actuator Availability Dictionary Reporting
    Verbose,    ! Internal Variable Availability Dictionary Reporting
    ErrorsOnly; ! EnergyPlus Runtime Language Debug Output Level

For the .edd, use an Output:EnergyManagementSystem object. You also need some other EMS objects like EnergyManagementSystem:ProgramCallingManager. Yes it is a chicken and the egg situation -- but similiar to working with the .rdd file. The reason it ends up that way is to improve performance when no EMS is being used; if no EMS related input is present the program can avoid all kinds of routines and the actuators and sensors don't actually exist.

Output:EnergyManagementSystem,
    Verbose,    ! Actuator Availability Dictionary Reporting
    Verbose,    ! Internal Variable Availability Dictionary Reporting
    ErrorsOnly; ! EnergyPlus Runtime Language Debug Output Level

EnergyManagementSystem:ProgramCallingManager,
    Dummy Program Manager, ! Name
    EndOfSystemSizing, ! EnergyPlus Model Calling Point
    DummyProgram; ! Program Name 1

EnergyManagementSystem:Program,
    DummyProgram, ! Name
    SET A = 1;
