The object Thermostat:OperativeTemperature is not available in OpenStudio. You can use the following energyplus measure to transform the ThermostatSetpointDualSetpoint that is available from openstudio into Thermostat:OperativeTemperature.

Thanks for your reply. That was a great help. Can I add this measure in Open studio ( in the measures tab/energy plus measure) or I have to export an idf file and do the modifications there? The problem is that i want to represent the results in Open studio result format...If I export the idf file, edit it ...I cannot import it again in open studio as some features will not be imported. So I would like to edit the osm file if it's possible.

Copy the contents of the zipped file into your default measures folder (you can look where it is if you go to Preferences, Change my measures directory). Then go to the measures tab in the openstudio GUI and drag it there. Measures are inherent to Openstudio.
