I was wondering if radiance generates monthly electricity consumption results. and if so, where can I see it? because OpenStudio Results does not recognize daylighting control when I apply the "radiance measure". and the radiance output folder only contains "daylight_metrics.csv" and illuminance values in "radout.sql"

Not sure if this answers your question, but here is some background on the basic approach for the Radiance measure. You model your building with daylight controls. Radiance runs and then the Radiance Measure determines based on analysis of daylghting and original lighting schedules when the lights should be on and at what level. The Radiance measure then writes out new lighting schedules to OpenStudio, and removes or disables the daylighting controls. EnergyPlus runs with the lighting schedules provided by the Radiance measure and does not use daylighting controls.

Hi David. thanks for the clarification. The problem is that the electricity consumption in OpenStudio Results, when the radiance measure is applied, is the same number as when no daylighting control and no radiance measure are applied. Or maybe I am looking in the wrong place for the radiance results. (in case it is not shown in the "OpenStudio results")

although i was wondering, is that new schedule accessible? I can calculate the electricity consumption myself using that.
