I haven't used this E+ measure before, but I can take a look at your model if you could share it.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1h8Q... The error is coming from Lifecycle cost use price escalation in the generated idf file, I cannot change the file since it is a read-only file. Also, i downloaded the measure from BCL any idea what could be the reason for such an error.

Thanks

If none of the measures failed but the datapoint failed, then it is likely due to a fatal error in the EnergyPlus simulation; however you said it runs smoothly in EnergyPlus directly. Look at the epllusout.err file in your datapoint and see what the fatal error is. If the IDF file itself is fine, then it is possible the weather file wasn't setup correctly in OpenStudio but was when you ran the IDF through EPLaunch.

Hey David, I changed the Weather file and now I am getting Energy Plus error that is Life cycle cost: Use price escallation Fuel Oil #1 , Failed to match enum values.

What could be the reason behind this?

The trick with some EnergyPlus measures, is that when the EnergyPlus IDD changes, they can be come stale if they are not maintained, This may be an example of that. Try updating the the measure to use the newer enum value for EnergyPlus of "FuelOilNo1" instead of "FuelOil#1". You can see the fuel types in the input output reference document..

Thank you David, But I cannot change the name in the same idf file generated in local results tab. That file is a read only. How to change that variable. Also when i am using a different energyplus measure. I am encountering the same issue.

Thanks

@Rwadhwa910 can you specify what measure from BCL this is. Is it one of the tariff selection and model setup measures?
