Hello everyone,

I am trying to compare the results of a model I made in IES with the same one in EnergyPlus (in GH), for that I want all the inputs to be the same. So far I managed to find a way to input everything apart from the sensible and latent gains. Is there a way to do that either by using existing components of HB or by writing an OpenStudio measure? (If the only way to do that is by writing an OpenStudio measure can someone please advise as to how? Because I have never done this before)

Ps. If you have done this in the past and have any other points/advises, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

If you have a measure that does change the gains Honeybee is capable of loading the measure and running it as a part of OpenStudio simulation.

Yes, I understood that, but I am new to the concept of creating measures for OpenStudio, so I would appreciate some guidance if possible..

Hi @Angeliq, I just added it as a comment so other people know this and can help you with writing the measure. The question was not clear that it is about writing the measure and not the functionality in Honeybee.

Good, thanks for clarifying then.

So, the only way to do it is by writing a measure.

There is no component or combination of components in Honeybee that I can use to achieve manually inputting sensible and latent gains?

Disclaimer: I personally do not use Grasshopper, but I use Openstudio.

You might want to try using this Openstudio measure to inject an Energyplus object called OtherEquipment and inject it in your simulation (find more info here).

The object can be used to add a specific load (sensible or latent) to a zone.

Hello, thanks a lot for the reply! I will try to use it, if I succeed, I will let you all know :)
