I am using Eppy to run E+ simulations. I am trying to do the following things:

  1. Creating only the .eso and .html files from the simulation
  2. Ability to save the above-mentioned output files with a desired name and location in my system, as I am trying to simulate the .idf file with changed input at each simulation, save the individual result and later compare them.

Let me know if I can do such.

short reply to 2. Yes. You can output the files to any name and directory. Basically you can do that by setting options to You can write a function similar make_eplaunch_options() in Make work like EPLaunch. Use this function to set the following

  • Output file name (output_prefix)
  • Output file directory (output_directory)

see in Using to see the run options and what they do

Hi @santoshphilip, thanks for your reply. I managed to get it now. I was also looking for another answer if it is possible to run an eppy script without installing EnergyPlus on my system. My idea is to make a web application which uses eppy functionality.

It would be good to post an answer to your question, so others may benefit from this interchange. As you say "I managed to get it now". Can you post your understanding as an answer to your own question (I am hoping lets the questioner also answer). This will help others searching when faced with similar problems

I see your question on web servers. I'll respond at that question
