I'm attempting to use the NZEHVAC Whole Building Measure to model a heat pump in a DOE Prototype Building. However it fails and gives this error message.

[15:37:51.450948 ERROR] Unable to perform sizing run for hvac system DOAS with fan coil chiller with central air source heat pump for this model. Check the openstudio-standards.log in this measure for more details

Where would I look for this log for the measure?

Ok, bear with me because by default those logs are hidden pretty bad.

I am assuming you are running Windows, in which case it will be in you App Data TEMP folder in C:\Users\{YOUR_USERNAME}\AppData\Local\Temp\. The log is deleted if you exit the interface in OpenStudio. So:

  1. Run the measure, it is going to show the error, do not exit the Apply Measure Now window. image description
  2. Navigate to C:\Users\luisc\AppData\Local\Temp.
  3. In the file explorer, search for a file called openstudio-standards.log
  4. You should find it.

The file is going to be in a directory named something like osmodel-1632432699-1\ApplyMeasureNow\run\000_83e77929-f391-407a-8aef-20994f5b7e37, and the other simulation files will be there.

Mark as solved if helpful!
