I modeled my building using E+ and I would like to know the PMV (Fanger) in its different zones but that output doesn't seem to be available in my RDD file. Is there any set up that I should put in my model in order for it to be available?

Any tip is appreciated.

You have to input fields in the People object to calculate/output variables e.g. activity level schedule name, work efficiency schedule name, thermal comfort model type etc. After defining these, you should be able to see comfort output variables (e.g. see below) in your .rdd file.

Output:Variable,*,Zone Thermal Comfort Fanger Model PMV,hourly; !- Zone Average []

Output:Variable,*,Zone Thermal Comfort Fanger Model PPD,hourly; !- Zone Average [%]
