Hello, I running a parametric analysis on 9 measures. When specifying just the first year, it gives me 256 points. But the output folder (TEMP1) seems to reset, and only seems to provide outputs for Points 200 through 256. How do I get the hourly outputs for Points 1 through 200?

Using BeOpt 2.8.0

On a related note, running parametric analyses don't seem to work yet in 3.0. Or am I missing something?

Thanks! - Ben

In BEopt 2.8, you would have to split your parametric into two cases, each with 128 points.

In BEopt 3, there is a setting where all output files for larger parametric and optimization cases can be preserved:

There are no known issues running parametric analysis in BEopt 3. Use BEopt 3.0.1 if you are not already, as it includes a number of bugfixes. If you still have an issue, please provide your project file via e.g. a Google Drive or Dropbox link.

In 3.0.1, Is it possible to get hourly results from each of the parametric runs, without selecting each point individually and hitting "generate timeseries output"? I don't see an hourly timeseries csv as part of the output, like 2.8 had. Thanks!
