I use the EP model with OpenStudio. Now, I have a weather data monitored in my institute and use it in the simulation.

In this case, it is required to recalculate wind speed considering the height of wind velocity meter. I think we can set the value of the meter height in Site:WeatherStation.

Here, my questions are:

  1. Are there any measures to set Site:WeatherStation for OpenStudio available?

  2. When using Weather Converter of EnergyPlus, how can we set our original weather stations for the climate data?

To answer your first question, the Site:WeatherStation object is not available through the OpenStudio API. You will need to use an EnergyPlus Measure to change the text fields of the object to whatever you need them to be.

To add to Luis's answer, you might find it easiest to use the OpenStudio measure Inject IDF Objects to add Site:WeatherStation to your model.
