I wonder what is the limit on rules number in one ruleset schedule and where can I find such limits in the documents?

FYI, I removed the "closed" tag. I know you did the right thing, and selected "right answer was accepted", but there is no need to close, the fact that you accepted the answer shows that it was solved.

When I see a "[closed]" tag in a question title, I automatically think there was something wrong with it (duplicated, bad question, spam), and I'm quite sure it's the same for everyone.

There is no limit, aside from what's practical... If you planned on using one rule for every hour of year, I'd strongly advise to not do that and use Schedule:FixedInterval or Schedule:VariableInterval (or Schedule:File once it gets implemented). See Can you load Schedule:File in OpenStudio?

In OS, the ScheduleRule is the one that references the ScheduleRuleset, so there's no limitation possible anyways.

If you want to convince yourself, use the ruby bindings in a terminal, type the following code, and go make yourself a coffee while it finishes (it should take like 10 minutes I think... I just did it for 1000 times while writing this).

m =
s =
10000.times.each do |i|
    puts i
    s_rule =
