I tried to see the results (SimResults and AllcombinedResults fiel)

However there's no energy consumption!

How can I see that?

What I want to do is just compare energy consumption and input files [infiltration, temperature, etc]

Parametric analysis........(sensitivity analyis)

I want to make graphs but the results looked weird to me.

There's no energy consumption.

and.. I saw there's a 6833 warnings.

I think it's because @@ Search tag....

I change everything but i couldn't change temperature because there's no appropriate space!!!


What if I want to make parameters as 1. heating setpoint temperature 2. Equipment use 3. Lighting schedule

How can i make rvi correctly?



Zone thermostat air temperature

Electric equipment schedule

Lighting schedule



Can you please help me?

Thanks for reading!!!

Can you post your RVI/RVX files?

You need to add what you want to see as outputs to the RVI file. At the moment you are just repeating your inputs. You need to add something like Gas:Facility (or whatever fuel you're using) to show the fuel used.

So your RVI file needs to be something like:

Zone thermostat air temperature
Electric equipment schedule

Your results will then be in eplusout.csv.

You can also see what the warnings are related to by looking at your eplusout.err file.

Just to add, @jane91 you can output your input values (temperature, infiltration) as well but you have to make sure that you write the exact names as used in the RDD file.

in addition, RVI folder path might have spaces and characters which cause ReadVarsESO to crash. You should replace absolute paths with relative paths, at least for rvi file.
