I tried to do some sensitivity analysis and calibration through jEPlus.

I thought it's going well.. because I validate project and start simulation.

However, I couldn't see the result file.

I have three input files IDF, epw, rvi

My rvi file is:

eplusout.eso
eplusout.csv
Electricity:HVAC
0

to see csv file, which I think is quite good.. isn't it?

Do I have to change something in the IDF file? This is a part of my IDF file (the bottom line in IDF file).

!-   ===========  ALL OBJECTS IN CLASS: OUTPUT:METER ===========

Output:Meter,
    Electricity:HVAC,        !- Name
    Hourly;                  !- Reporting Frequency


!-   ===========  ALL OBJECTS IN CLASS: OUTPUT:SQLITE ===========

Output:SQLite,
    SimpleAndTabular;        !- Option Type


!-   ===========  ALL OBJECTS IN CLASS: OUTPUT:DIAGNOSTICS ===========

Output:Diagnostics,
    DisplayAdvancedReportVariables;  !- Key 1

If you only need Electricity:HVAC, you can put it in the meter file with this line:

Output:Meter:MeterFileOnly,Electricity:HVAC,runperiod;

In the RVI file, make sure each parts are on separate lines, like this:

eplusout.mtr 
eplusout.csv 
Electricity:HVAC 
0

Output:SQLite and Output:Diagnostics may not be necessary in the parametric run.

Thanks for answering

It's really honor to meet you in here!

You mean just replace Output: Meter with Output:Meter:MeterFileOnly, Electricity: HVAC, runperiod ;

!- =========== ALL OBJECTS IN CLASS: OUTPUT:METER ===========

Output:Meter:MeterFileOnly,Electricity:HVAC,runperiod; Electricity:HVAC, !- Name Hourly; !- Reporting Frequency

!- =========== ALL OBJECTS IN CLASS: OUTPUT:DIAGNOSTICS ===========

Output:Diagnostics, DisplayAdvancedReportVariables; !- Key 1

I tried but it didn't work.

Is there any other way to solve this matter??

Thank yo

Replace the line under "===ALL OBJECT IN CLASS: OUTPUT:METER===" with the line I've given, and also change the first line of the RVI from eplusout.eso to eplusout.mtr...
