2020-06-16 09:06:08 -0600 marked best answer Question concerning Table LookUp in EnergyPlus

Hi All,

I have create a Lookup Table with an external CSV file and I defined my IndependentVariable and everything was done correctly.

My question is: how to define my independent variable to be the outdoor Air or diffused radiation or (Any EnergyPlus Output value)..

Please here is an example to be more clear:

Outdoor Air (IndependentVariable): -1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 30

Output Value: 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600

So if the Ambient Temp is 10 ( For exmp) , I have 400 as output.

How to Link the Outdoor Air (IndependentVariable) to the Outdoor Air Dry Bulb Temperature from my Weather File?

Thank You

2020-06-08 15:39:07 -0600 marked best answer Make My own Output Variable in Energyplus?

Hi all, I would like to create my own output variable from my IDF Output:Variable object.

I have several zone in my building ( for exmp zone 1, 2,3). From my RDD File I have "HVAC,Average,Zone Ideal Loads Zone Sensible Heating Rate [W]".

In the excel File, I obtained:

-Zone 1 Ideal Loads Zone Sensible Heating Rate [W]

-Zone 2 Ideal Loads Zone Sensible Heating Rate [W]

-Zone 3 Ideal Loads Zone Sensible Heating Rate [W]

How to create my own Output variable to be the sum of all Ideal Loads zone sensible heating rate?

Thank you

2020-05-27 09:42:20 -0600 marked best answer EMS Error When Using PV Generation as Sensor

Hi all, Im Using EMS in Energy plus for making my Pump ON while my PV system production is higher than 3000 watts. Here is my Program:

EnergyManagementSystem:Sensor,
  PV_Generation,      !- Name
  Average,                 !- Output:Variable or Output:Meter Index Key Name
  Electric Load Center Produced Electric Power;  !- Output:Variable or Output:Meter Name


EnergyManagementSystem:Actuator,
  CHW_Loop_Sch_Modified,   !- Name
  CHW_Loop_Schd,           !- Actuated Component Unique Name
  Schedule:Compact,        !- Actuated Component Type
  Schedule Value;          !- Actuated Component Control Type

EnergyManagementSystem:ProgramCallingManager,
  CHW_Program,             !- Name
  BeginTimestepBeforePredictor,  !- EnergyPlus Model Calling Point
  System_Storage;          !- Program Name 1

EnergyManagementSystem:Program,
  System_Storage,          !- Name
  IF (PV_Generation > 3000),  !- Program Line 1
    SET CHW_Loop_Sch_Modified = 1,  !- Program Line 2
  ELSE,                    !- A4
    SET CHW_Loop_Sch_Modified = 0,  !- A5
  ENDIF;                   !- A6

I got this Error:

** Invalid Output:Variable or Output:Meter Index Key Name =AVERAGE

** ~~~ ** For Output:Variable or Output:Meter = ELECTRIC LOAD CENTER PRODUCED ELECTRIC POWER

** ~~~ ** Entered in EnergyManagementSystem:Sensor=PV_GENERATION

** ~~~ ** Unique Key Name not found.

Please can someone guide me?

Please note:

  • HVAC,Average,Electric Load Center Produced Electric Power [W] is taken from my RDD File.
  • CHW_Loop_Schd is my pump schedule.

Thank you
