Hi everyone, I'm trying to run a FMU on a co-simulation platform. The original E+ model contains "Schedule File" used to declare occupancy schedule. When I run the FMU get the following error: image description image description

It seems that the file refered in "Schedule File" can't be found. Indeed it doesn't appear in FMU's resources. I have try to add the missing file in the FMU's resources but it failed. Does anyone know how to creat a FMU with "Schedule File" in it ?

Thank you. Marin

It looks like all of the Schedule:File objects are referencing the same Incas.txt file that contains the schedule data because that is what is set for the File Name input field. Without any "/" in the File Name input field , this Incas.txt file needs to be saved in the same folder as the IDF in order for EnergyPlus to read it. If that doesn't work, then try entering the full directory path to Incas.txt instead.

I haven't used the FMU/FMI features of EnergyPlus, so I'm not sure how this relates to the FMU's resources that you mentioned.
