Hello, I created a serie of FMUs from idf and epw files using the EnergyPlusToFMU tool. The input idf files have a given end date 'd'. The epw file covers the same period as RunPeriod plus 1 day (d+1). However when I use the FMUs (in Python), they only go until d-1. The idf files generated when instanciating the FMUs (in Output_EPExport_Slave) have d-1 as an end date in their RunPeriod. What am I doing wrong here ? Thank you very much in advance, C.

The start and end date of your input file are defined by the start time and end time set by your master algorithm. Your original IDF will be overwritten to reflect the master algorithms times. What values do you use as start and end time in your master?

You are right, that was the issue. End time in my master was indeed d-1. Thank you for your help !
