Hello, I have already tried the same model with OpenStudio Versions 2.7, 2.8 and 2.9. The model runs fine with EnergyPlus Simulations but fails as soon as Radiance Measure is applied. The added illuminance Map, Glare Sensor and the Daylight Controller fall inside a Thermal Zone as was required as I searched through a few previous questions that have been covered in the same forum. The link to the model is :

Kindly help.

Can you set “input” in measure?

@David Goldwasser how can i fix the problem with in openstuio 2.9 using the documentation in github?

edit flag offensive delete link more



I was able to fix it this way (I am not sure if this is exactly right, but it works):

  1. Follow the github link.
  2. Click the measure.rb link
  3. Right click on the "Raw" link and save link as (this downloads the ruby file
  4. You will have to either locate the measure in your My Measures folder or the BCL folder. I think it would be best to do your My Measures folder, otherwise it might try to sync with the older BCL version...
  5. If you do not have a custom copy of the Radiance measure, you will have to make one.
  6. Replace the measure.rb file with the new one you got from Github.

If you want more information on how measures are handled, you can see this video:

@Ski90Moo thank you! I followed step-by-step your suggestion but I have another syntax error: C:/Users/loren/AppData/Local/Temp/OpenStudioApp.b13988/resources/measures/Radiance Daylighting Measure/measure.rb:1418: syntax error, unexpected keyword_rescue, expecting keyword_end rescue Exception => e Have you any ideas? Thank you very much

@lorenzo.belussi it appears there is an error when reading line 1418. It is saying there is an end statement missing. In looking at an older version of the radiance measure it reads like this:

def writeTimeSeriesToSql(sqlfile, simDateTimes, illum, space_name, ts_name, ts_units) data = illum.length.times do |n| begin data[n] = illum[n].to_f rescue Exception => e print_statement('Error inserting data: ' + illum[n] + ' inserting 0 instead', runner) data[n] = 0 end end

I would suspect the code has been updated to conform to the latest ruby or PERL syntax... make sure you are using the latest and compatible versions of all softwares.

It looks like there is an error on line 1320 of the measure. This chunk of code:

      t_radGlareSensorViews[space_name]&.each do |sensor, v|
        new_hash[sensor] = v[hour]

should be (notice I removed the & symbol):

      t_radGlareSensorViews[space_name].each do |sensor, v|
        new_hash[sensor] = v[hour]

@david-goldwasser where is the radiance measure maintained these days?

The new online BCL update works on 3.1 as well...Thanks a lot!!!

Iswarya M Mohan's avatar Iswarya M Mohan  ( 2020-10-17 12:27:31 -0600 )edit

It appears that the measure was not updated on the BCL. Last update was 6/23/2020.

@Ski90Moo we are working on a refactor of BCL, if you want to get the most current one for now please use the github link in my earlier comment.

@David Goldwasser I downloaded the github version, but it still raises error like the question said. What' s more, I found I can't set "input" of the measure.
