Hi all,

I'm writing a measure for hot water baseboards as a form of supplementary heating and hit an issue. I want to be able to specify the 'Fraction of Autosized Heating Design Capacity' but I'm not seeing it in the SDK:

Link to OS SDK Documentation

Is this feature not added yet?

looks like it isn't available yet. You can set it through an EnergyPlus measure, or ask @Kyle Benne if/when it will be available.

thanks @mdahlhausen

I noticed them in the OpenStudio application. What's interesting is that if I set this value manually in the application, suddenly the raw OSM text file expands the object to include these variables by adding extra rows. I know you can set these variables by referencing their indices with setString(index, "value"). Is this a possible workaround? If so, how can I tell an OSM object to expand from being a simple object (e.g. only a few rows of variables) to include extra rows for optional variables (like I managed to achieve by manually editing in the application)?
