I add gas equipment to my model but the temperature inside the thermal zone does not change. I'm working with openstudio.

I assigned the Schedule for the gas equipment, but when I change the number for ''design level'' or ''power per space for area'' the temperature interior don't change

When you say the interior temperature does not change, do you have a running HVAC system? Maybe the HVAC system functioning and meeting the increased load.

I'm working with pasive meassures so i'm not working with HVAC system. first I make the model without equipment and i evalue the interior temperature with the thermal load

Are you seeing any gas consumption? Is it possible that you created an internal load instance for a space type but that space type isn't assigned to any spaces? Lastly there is also an instance multiplier for load instances. This defaults to 1. Make sure that isn't set to 0.
