Hello, I am new to OS and this is my first time meddling with advanced lighting systems. I am currently working on a project where TDD's are essential and I was wondering if there's an easy way to apply this strategy on OS. I tried changing the subtype of skylights to Tubular daylight diffusers in the model however it fails to run without providing any error messages so I'm not really sure what the problem is.

Belated answer, @m.habib. At the time of your question, OpenStudio offered a partial implementation & forward translation of TDDs to EnergyPlus. This was remedied in summer 2021. There's a nice, concise example here.
