Alright, I have used GLHEPro for years to design well fields for my company so I am knowledgeable in its uses and application. Previous workflow included using eQuest but this is my first time trying to use the measures in E+.

Sizing is not a problem as the results seem to align with my experience in well fields but bringing the G-Function back is not working at all. I get an immediate notification while applying the GLHEProGFunctionImport measure that there are missing fields. Then when I apply changes and review the well field I notice that some of the data is in the wrong fields.

I am attaching a copy of the measure warnings and a screen shot of the openstudio loop. Also, I am including a copy of the G-Function export from GLHEPro. The error starts at the ground temperature and continues on.

I am not sure if this is a software version issue but I am up to date on everything including the latest version of GLHEPRO.

Any thoughts? Even if I open up the GLHEPro output and manually enter the data something is just not right. image description

You don't mention what version of OS you're using, but I tried using the GLHEPro Measure not too long ago (w/ 2.1 or a 2.2 release candidate) and it was having problems. I think the Measure may need to be updated.

I am using 2.2. I wished I knew a little more about measures then I would tackle making this work.

May I kindly inquire what your workflow was for eQUEST?

Found my own solution. I cannot write code from scratch but I can sure edit it. I was able to modify the original Ruby file to align the values from the GLHEPRO G function output to the data needed for E+.

Apparently, somewhere down the line there was a change and it shifted the data. Once it was fixed it brought everything in and worked perfectly.

Cool! Would you be willing to send your fix to so we can update the Measure on BCL?

I would be happy to.
