I am trying to apply the same schedule twice in a default schedule set, which can be seen in the code attached below.

Where space_type_props["occupancy_activity_sch"] is a schedule name which I add to the model using the OpenStudio-Standards gem.

Unfortunately - for whatever reason (there are no warnings emitted either) this doesn't work because as you can see in the resulting idf Number of People Schedule is missing.

What could I be doing wrong here?

setPeopleActivityLevelSchedule expects a schedule with units in watts, while setNumberofPeopleSchedule takes a fractional schedule. Each of the methods returns a bool, so you could do something like test = sch_set.setNumberofPeopleSchedule and see if test is true. You can also call if sch_set.numberofPeopleSchedule.is_initialized.
