I tried to practice jEPlus with tutorial and then I want to change parameters.

I practice with "5ZoneAirCooled IDF" (EnergyPlus example) file

i put values [0.1: 0.01: 0.6]

I thought in Preview section i can see [0.1, .011, 0.12, 0.13, 0.14 --- 0.6]

but i only can see the "error" sign.

My question is... (1) how can i set my own parameters? (infiltration, temperature, and U-value.) (2)Is there any standars like it's better to range my parameter? I think i can use "preliminary estimates of uncertainties in model parameters" in journal

Just want to clear, can you see values in the preview section? If not, then I think you may have forgotten to change the value type to double. Please see figure below.

I hope I have answer your question, if not, please paste a picture of how you have set up your project or explain a bit more to clarify.

I wonder what's the difference integer, double, and discrete.

I thought discrete mean is numerical variables......

Can you explain simply??

Integers are numbers with no fraction, double includes numbers with decimals, while the discrete type of parameters can include text strings.
