There are several ways to adjust DHW operation, but the simplest would be either to assign an AvailabilityManager:Schedule with a schedule that specifies the water heater operation period, or adjust the Flow Rate Fraction Schedules specified in the WaterUse:Equipment objects (if that's how you're specifying DHW usage).
