OpenStudio Results Monthly Overview Chart

asked 2018-04-25 04:11:55 -0500

Hi All,

My monthly overview chart is only showing Interior Lighting and Equipment, and not showing heating and cooling even though I can see them in district cooling and heating summary charts.

How can I fix this problem? Am I doing something wrong with the simulation?

Thnx in advance,

The Monthly Overview chart is fuel-specific. Lighting and Equipment use electricity as a fuel. District heating and cooling are their own separate fuels with their own monthly charts.

The monthly Overview section has a chart for each fuel showing each end use for this fuel. Make sure you're not just looking at the first one, which is the electric one. Here I have a simple model with one zone that has lights and electric equipment, and with ideal loads (which reports as district cooling and heating):
