I need to use a schedule in OpenStudio that has changes in monthly, daily and hourly base...When i use ruleset schedules, the simulation doesn't go forward, it gets stucked in 66% for days...I think I need a Year schedule and it doesn't exist in my library. Is there a way to solve this?

What do you mean the simulation "gets stuck in 66% for days"? does the simulation stop? Or is it just slow? The OpenStudio Schedule:Ruleset is the only one you can make / edit with the app. You will need to use the OpenStudio API if you would like to use Schedule:Year or Schedule:File objects.

OpenStudio's Schedule:Ruleset will already utilize the EP Schedule:Year object. I don't think the schedule type is what's causing your simulation to be slow. You can either open another question or add more details to this question to explain where your simulation is getting stuck.

If you need to create 365 rules under the same ruleset, it's going to get pretty unpractical. I suggest reading up on this question about how to load a csv file into OS using the ruby bindings. As far as your simulation getting stuck, look at the error files, it might be a variety of things.

thanks for your kind answers. the problem is; i don't have anything under the Schedule sets, library, year schedules. Only the schedule sets and ruleset schedules have the schedules under.

You need to build the schedules in the schedules tab of the interface.
