Hi,

I generated occupancy profiles based on the number of occupants in a household in .csv format and in total I have 840 profiles per 10 minutes interval. I want to simulate each case. Could anyone help me with how I can do simulations using jEPlus or Python? And in what format I should use the occupancy data?

Thanks

Use Schedule:File (see https://bigladdersoftware.com/epx/doc...) and then you can use the file names as a parameter in jEPlus.

Thanks Yi for the reply. One more question, do you have any idea or a sample in which format I should put data in the .csv file?

You can use the Python Plugin released with versions 9.3, 9.4, and 9.5 to co-simulate with EP. What you need to do is get the handle of the occupancy schedule and then change the occupancy variable in python. By doing so, you can run as many simulations as you want.
