DOE-2 Command Line Hourly Reports

asked 2018-10-02 13:43:52 -0500

I'm implementing a process using DOE-2 files which are initially built within eQuest and then transitioned to multiple inp files using Python that can then be run all at once. The files simulate fine, but the HSR file that outputs CSV-style hourly reports after an eQuest run is missing (I'm not sure if the HSR file is specific to eQuest or if I'm not setting up my INP file properly). I've looked through the DOE-2 reference guide and engineering manual but can't find any way to automatically export hourly results in a similar fashion when running a simulation.

Is there any way to do this? I'd like to ideally save myself the time and added complexity of writing a SIM parser in Python for the hourly results section.

I've done that in the past using the HOURLY-DATA-SAVE = FORMATTED keyword. By default it is set to NO-SAVE. HSR is an eQUEST file, not DOE-2.

@Jeremy , where is the HOURLY-DATA-SAVE = FORMATTED keyword set? as part of the DOE2 .inp or is it in a config/ini/other file?

It's part of the DOE2 input file. In eQUEST it's located under Project & Site, Simulation Output, Non-Hourly Report, click on one of the non-hourly report and it'll show up under "Hourly Data Save Format".
