Here i attached the file. does this help someway?




I am new to open-studio. I developed very simple 5 zone model and it successfully runs on OS v2.1.0. I am trying to use PAT for running some of the BCL measures. However, when i run the simulation it gives an error despite of following OS 2.1 online tutorial available on NREL website. image description

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Under the "View" menu, please select Toggle Developer Tools. This opens up a side panel with status and error messages directly from PAT. Are you seeing errors in there? (I suspect you will.) If so, please cut/paste them in your question above and we'll go from there.

@Javed I think you are hitting an issue that affects optional arguments in 2.x installers to date. I believe our next installer will address this. I assume you are using one of the AEDG HVAC measures, or another measure based on this. I see the "cilingReturnPlenumSpaceType" is being passed an empty string. You are also hitting issue where the default value of "0" for the cost isn't getting passed in. I'll try to think about a quick easy work-around. (Let me know which specific measure you are using, I think I have an idea, that might be one line change in measure).

I've seen 0 cause these issues when entered for an optional cost. Changing it to a non-zero value should allow things to run. As David mentioned, this will be fixed in an upcoming release.
