Hi, i am trying to incorporate E+ together with simulink to create a PID controller to achieve the setpoint temperature in a room by controlling the water flow rate. Firstly i made my model in E+ and run it and it was fine. Following that, i inserted the externalinterface parameters: Externalinterface: PtolemyServer Externalinterface - schedule: TsetCoo; Any number; 22;

When i run it in BCVTB, i have the following simulation log:

ExternalInterface starts first data exchange. **FATAL:Error in ExternalInterface: Check EnergyPlus *.err file. EnergyPlus Run Time=00hr 00min 13.90sec

Program terminated: EnergyPlus Terminated--Error(s) Detected. Error: The server closed the socket while the client was reading.

ReadVarsESO program starting. EOF encountered during read of ESO header records probable EnergyPlus error condition -- check eplusout.err

ReadVarsESO program terminated. ReadVars Run Time=00hr 00min 0.03sec

ReadVarsESO program starting. EOF encountered during read of ESO header records probable EnergyPlus error condition -- check eplusout.err

ReadVarsESO program terminated. ReadVars Run Time=00hr 00min 0.03sec

Started HVAC Diagram ERROR: ReadBND, Did not recognize: Controlled Zone Return,1,THERMAL ZONE 1,NODE 14

Could Not Find C:\EnergyPlusV9-2-0\FYPHopefullyitwillwork3.1\Energy+.ini

The error as reflected in my E+ log is as followed: evere * ExternalInterface: Received "2" double values, expected "1". * Fatal ** Error in ExternalInterface: Check EnergyPlus *.err file.

What does these error stand for? Any help is deeply appreciated thank you!

maybe u should look for energyplus file on BCVTB platform. try looking the file "variable.cfg" at your e+ folder.

make sure it contain only 1 input from ptolemy.
