Hello, it seems not possible to use actuator and internal variable at the zonegroup level for electricequipment object. Here is my exemple to get interval and actuator variable of an electricequipment. tested on the "1ZoneUncontrolled.idf" exemple file.

Schedule:Constant,
alwayson,
on/off,
1.0;

ZoneList,
zonelist_name,
zone one;

ZoneGroup,
zonegroup_name,
zonelist_name,
1;

ElectricEquipment,
electric_equipment,
zonelist_name,
alwayson,
equipmentlevel,
0;

EnergyManagementSystem:Actuator,
actuator_name,
zone one electric_equipment,
electricequipment,
electric power level;

EnergyManagementSystem:InternalVariable,
internal_name,
zone one electric_equipment,
plug and process power design level;
