OS Measure to access: Minimum Air Flow Turndown Schedule Name

I am trying to write an EnergyPlus measure to access/write the EnergyPlus field (#8) Minimum Air Flow Turndown Schedule Name on a AirTerminal:DualDuct:VAV object. For some reason I am successful in writing to the field #7 Design Specification Outdoor Air Object Name but it will not let me write to field #8. Does this have to do with the forward translator or is there something that I am missing? Maybe there is a mistake in my code?

The measure successfully runs, but when I examin the idf input file, it only seems to write to field #7. Here is the ruby file:

There were two mistakes:

line 79: min_af_td_sched was called out as a string instead of a variable

line 98: min_af_td_sched should be converted to a string with .to_s before writing to the idf file.

Despite these mistakes being fixed, I was still unable to successfully run the measure using OpenStudio version 2.9.1. The measure does work with the new OS version 3.0.1 (App version 1.0.1).
