Hi. Actually, I'm struggling in testing different damper positions, when that damper is not listed as an output in the idf editor class list. Since, I was wondering if anyone can assist and let me know in details how to have that option listed in the idf file class list, in order to be able to check the damper position on heating/cooling load summary. To be more clear, I already added the following from rdd and pasted into idf file:

HVAC,Average,Zone Air Terminal Cold Supply Duct Damper Position [];

But it resulted in server error! Any ideas? Thanks,

Have you run a simulation on your file yet? If not run a simulation and see if the output variable appears in the your class list.

Yes, I did. That output variable is not listed there. This is why I'm wondering if you can help me to figure it out how to have that variable showed up in the class list. Thanks!
