Add Interval Schedule From File

asked 2020-05-22 16:54:51 -0500

updated 2020-05-22 19:27:22 -0500

I am trying to use the Add Interval Schedule From File measure to input a leap year, 15-minute intervals, load profile to simulate a chilled water plant. I am using OS:LoadProfile:Plant. I have figured out how to format the .csv files and use the BCL measure. They are successfully applied to the in.osm file.

This measure does not seem to work using "Apply Now", I suspect because OpenStudio does not recognize Schedule:Compact or OS:Schedule:FixedInterval. So, it has to be applied just before translation to .idf file.

How do I get the OS:LoadProfile:Plant object to recognize the schedules if they are not available in the OpenStudio interface?

My mistake. I must have entered something wrong that caused an error. The Apply Measure Now does work, sometimes.... For some reason I have encountered this error again:

Changing the OS:LoadProfile:Plant Load Schedule Name to something other than "Always On Discrete hvac_library" seems to clear up this error.
