Schedule values interpolation

I am trying to run a simulation with smaller time steps but this causes my schedule values to be 1 even if they are set as 0. I found out that this can be due to EnergyPlus trying to interpolate the schedule values. I could not find any field in my IDF where I have set Interpolate to either Yes or No Not even in Schedules.

Any idea why this is happening and how to fix this?


Kindest Regards

it starts one hours earlier and finishes one hours earlier as well (it is office occupancy), meaning instead of starting at 9:00 it starts at 8:00 and instead of ending at 17:00, it ends at 16:00. Any ideas?

According to what you described in your comment, schedule shifting might be due to daylight saving period being applied.
