I am using OS v2.4.
I only define two types of electric equipment definition using Watts Per Space Floor Area as shown below image.
However, when I look at the idf file exported from OS, I saw other definition is included using Design Level (I put one of the example below). I want to delete these definition in OS. But cannot find anywhere. Does anyone know where these are defined? Same situation for Lighting also.

@katsuya.obara Can you list the "other definitions" you get in the idf or better post a link to the OS model?

This is automatically done by OpenStudio during forward translation when you have more than one space in the same thermal zone.

It combines the Spaces into a single thermal zone, and when doing this, it converts the various potential Lights (and LightsDefinition) objects into a given lighthing level (absolute, in W, allows to sum two or more LightsDefinition that could have different lighting units).
