EDAPT Export help fro PAT

asked 2020-06-13 13:00:24 -0500

updated 2020-07-31 08:30:25 -0500

Having a very tough time in PAT getting my alternates to my baseline model to export to EDAPT properly.

Anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong.

Keeps saying no edapt export measure was included (the corresponding measures are in my OpenStudio model baseline), it will not be included in EDAPT XML report...

@HarrisEnergy2020 you should have enough karma points now to attach an image to this post.

I didn't assign the open studio results pull down menu within my design alternatives. Once completed everything worked!

The last block of errors are saying that the OpenStudio Results measure that you can download from the Building Component Library (BCL) should be included with all of your design alternatives in PAT in order to see their energy use results.

I'm not sure about the Edapt Export measure warnings since I've never done that in PAT myself. I also searched for "EDAPT Export" and "EDAPT" on the BCL but didn't find anything ... sorry.

Thank you, Aaron! As you can see I did include the BCL openstudio measures within the baseline model (I added an additional picture in my comment above) as well not sure why it's not recognizing that within PAT when I simulate them.

@HarrisEnergy2020 what I mean is that you need to assign the OpenStudio Results measure to each design alternative in PAT, even if you had the OpenStudio Results measure assigned to the seed or baseline OSM file. This is because it's a reporting measure that alters outputs from EnergyPlus into specific formats -- it doesn't actually change the OSM. The same goes for any other reporting measure, like the EDAPT Export measure.
