Hi all, i would like ask someone to help me with this problem. I scheduled 38 persons from 7:30 to 9:00 am, but when I see the results of the zone people count I observed that the result start from 6:31 instead of 7:30 (see images below) and I don't know how this happen. I would like to know what is the reason for this and how can I fix this.

Thank you and your help is much appreciated.

Are you applying Daylight Savings Time (DST)? This is an input field of the RunPeriod object.

Fairly certain that @Aaron Boranian has pointed out the reason. EnergyPlus always reports time series output using standard time. When daylight savings time (DST) is active, all scheduled values will shift up an hour.
