Hello Openstudio masters!

I´m using Openstuido, and came back with another question, finally I get into the simulation phase. And I have got a question about the result.

It is possible to get "hourly heat balance result por an especific wall for example", i mean, getting the same results than Design Builder. I not refer the zone rate, just a surface.

And finally, it is posible to export in excel?

Thank you very much, this forum will saving my Final Career work

You can request "Surface Average Face Conduction Heat Transfer Energy" as the variable name, and replace the default key value of "*" with a specific surface name using the Add Output Variable measure.
