Hi, I am trying to provide the schedule: File for Clothes dryer and Refrigerator in Energyplus instead of yearly, weekly, daily, and 24 hour schedule. It applies correctly for all the hours except for 12:00 AM it uses another value for schedule.

I am also deleting the previous schedules.

Could you please help me with that?

Following are the Excel file of the problem that I am observing, .idf, weather file, and schedule file. As you know you need to change the schedule file location in the .idf file to run that.

I'm not sure we have enough information to help you there. Could you provide the IDF and the file for schedule? Or at least show us that the value is indeed wrong at 12:00AM.

Thanks for your help offer. I tried to attach the .idf and Excel schedule file but it seems that we are only able to send image files here. Could you please help me about that?

You can upload it to wherever you want (google drive, dropbox, wetransfer,...) and add a link to your original question. Or if you append ".jpg" to the extension of the file it should allow you to upload it here as a workaround...

If you are in OpenStudio, you can use the Add Interval Schedule From File measure. If you are in EnergyPlus, it should work in a similar way; you could make a dummy OpenStudio model, apply the measure, and then see if your Schedule:File object in your .idf matches the output .idf from the implementation of the OpenStudio measure.
