Hi everyone, I am running and modifying EnergyPlus with eppy and geomeppy, and I have two questions:

When running energyplus with eppy the output files are all named eplusout. For example: eplusout.eso or eplusout.csv When I saveas the .idf with eppy, I am able to give it a new name, but this name is not applied to the output files. However, for the purpose of my project, I need them to get a specific name. Do you might know a way for it? (If I simulate the created .idf with ep-launch, it will have the new name, but I want to make this change automatically with a code)

My second question is about the extra outputs that energyplus generates, like for example .audit, .bnd, etc. ... I need just the .eso and .html files. Is there any way to remove those extra files with a python code?

take a look at Make work like EPLaunch. It may give a partial answer to the questions you are asking.
