Using ResStock v2.2.4, OpenStudio v2.9.0 and EnergyPlus v9.2.

I am using PAT to run AWS cloud simulations. The issue is that end_use timeseries.csv is not showing up in my folder in the localResults directory after simulation has completed and I have downloaded all datapoints.

Here is an example folder open for data point id e5b3aed8-5a4f-4512-9a2c-f2a0cd5c3685.


As you can see, there is clearly no csv file in this directory.

My ordering of OS measures and reporting measures in PAT is below;

An expansion of the Timeseries CSV Export measure shows I am NOT skipping it.

Any idea why this is happening?

Is it possible that the "Server Directory Cleanup" measure is deleting the CSV file?

I don’t think so because I haven’t edited anything in Server Directory Cleanup, nor have I touched that measure’s ruby code.

Perhaps the CSV file is too large and getting excluded from the zip file. I think there is a maximum file size limit in OpenStudio. I can't tell how many output variables you are requesting, but you are requesting "Timestep" frequency, which could generate a lot of output. Perhaps try using "Hourly" or reducing the number of output variables.

The issue was that the CSV file was indeed too large. To decrease the size of enduse_timeseries.csv so that it shows up in localResults, you can either

  1. reduce the timesteps per hour of the simulation (if you are reporting under the timestep frequency) to reduce the row length of the CSV file.

This was done in measures Timeseries CSV Export and Set Residential Simulation Controls.

decreasing timesteps per hour in measure Set Residential Simulation Controls

reporting frequency timestep

or 2. turn off end_use subcategory reporting and include zero additional EnergyPlus output variables to reduce the number of columns of the CSV file.

This was done in measures Simulation Output Report and Timeseries CSV Export. no enduse subcategory reporting

no addtl E+ reporting vars
