Editing BeOpt file to correct heating/cooling season schedules

asked 2022-05-23 19:37:12 -0500

Hello, I am trying to use be-opt to help do some parametric analysis but the issue of the automated cooling schedule shut off has become an issue. Someone noted that the '' file that comes with BeOpt might be able to be modified to correct this issue, by telling BeOpt to not set the seasonal schedules. Can anyone who knows BeOpt and/or Python well help me understand if this is a route I can take? I've started to review the file but have gotten kind of lost.

I think this worked without breaking anything:

change line 1872 to "heating_season[i] = 1"
change line 1879 to "cooling_season[i] = 1"

Also, yes I realize the set points are very narrow.

Note that BEopt v3 will allow you to define heating/cooling seasons (and will default to year-round operation).
