I built a simple model with three thermal zones in openstudio , and just add thermostat to one of them, now I want to see the ideal load of each single zone in output, but in DView for Details Rrports seems just show the load of whole model, I have checked Possible Output Variables but I didn't see a button about zone Ideal load. Do I miss something(PS: I know how to see each zone's ideal load in energyplus so I just want to know how to get this result from OS)

Thanks in advance

I would use x eso viewer which is a free download and far better than the others I have used. Ensure that you create a thermal zone for each space. Add a thermostat into each zone. Ensure ideal air loads has been set for each space. Set schedules for heating and cooling. There is a quick openstudio guide on their website and excellent videos on You Tube which will help you. I would also name each space, so that you associate the space when you open the ESO file with x eso viewer

As per comments.

Add a thermal zone for each room. Name each space and thermal zone. Add thermostat for each thermal zone. Ensure each space is set to ideal air loads. Set schedules for thermostats. There are a number of good thermostat measures in the building component library. I would also recommend that you search on You Tube for openstudio tutorials and look on the openstudio website for the quick tutorials. As stated previously, use xeso viewer, which is free to download and the best viewer for the results in openstudio
