I'm trying to simulate Kiva with EnergyPlus, but the next error continues to come out.

 ** Severe  ** Foundation:Kiva="<Default Foundation>", only one floor per Foundation:Kiva Object allowed.

What this is mean? Im quite new in simulation with EnergyPLus and Kiva but i need to calculate the ground surface temperature. Somebody can help me?

Please view the E+ documentation for the Kiva:Foundation object. Specifically note where it talks about limitations and says

Exactly one floor surface must reference each Foundation:Kiva object. However, multiple floors may exist in the same thermal zone so long as they reference separate Foundation:Kiva objects.
