When I do fully the occupancy schedule in OpenStudio, I get meaningless results in PMV values. PMV values I am getting a wrong result.

@atmaca could you include an image of your PMV results? You may not be defining the thermal comfort inputs of the People objects, which would prevent EnergyPlus from properly calculating PMV-PPD outputs.

@Aaron Boranian I get meaningful results at different times of the day. I only get meaningless results in the full hours of use. The image on the link the indoor environment is full between 12.00-14.00. A similar situation is experienced in the negative zone in the summer. (

Are "full hours of use" when the occupancy schedule = 100%?

@Aaron Boranian Yes, it is. The link shows the occupancy schedule.

@atmaca the occupancy schedule in your second link is only applied to Thursdays (purple color applied to the calendar on the right). What are the default (light blue) occupancy schedules applied to other days of the week? You should have enough karma points to include images in your post if you edit it instead of post links to images via Google Drive.
