Upon trying to run the "Set Output Table to IP Units" EnergyPlus measure in OpenStudio, I get the following error (sorry, I do not know how to format this). Does anyone know what might be wrong? The "eplustbl.html" file in the "run" directory does seem to show IP units after all.

[08:23:01.914749 WARN] IP units were provided, SI units were expected. Leave EnergyPlus tabular results in SI units to run this report.

The OpenStudio Results measure needs the EnergyPlus output to be in SI to do its unit conversion to IP.

To not receive that error, don't include the OS Results measure with your run, and just do the EnergyPlus unit conversion measure.

See here, here, and related discussion here.
