I'm trying to apply the "Create DOE Prototype Building" measure to generate the prototypical lab building (with that building type added manually to the list of building types in the measure, which is expected to work), using the version of the Create DOE Prototype Building measure downloaded today from the BCL, and version 1.0.0 of the OpenStudio Application. The Ruby gemfile in the OpenStudio Application folder specifies version 0.2.11 of openstudio-standards, which should be compatible with the lab building option for this measure (OpenStudioApplication 1.1.0 is based on OpenStudio SDK 3.0.0 and it's gemfile is here)

I'm getting the error message in the image attached (about energy_recovery being an unknown keyword)


when I try to apply this measure (with a vintage of 2010, which the option should be compatible with).

I noticed that the energy_recovery argument is no longer in the model_add_doas method in the master branch of openstudio-standards on GitHub, so maybe that is part of the problem.

Does anyone have advice on troubleshooting this? Thanks!

The fact that you are having to manually add the building type the the measure is an indication that it isn't the correct version of the measure. Try the copy of the measure in the 0.3.0 version of the model articulation gem. You can get this by installing the Ruby gem or by checking out the GitHub repository. In either case use your my measures directory to access the measure from the OpenStudio Application.
