2015-11-09 20:39:15 -0600 asked a question How to modify ventilation rates?


I am rather new at using OpenStudio/EnergyPlus, and I would like to modify/add a fraction schedule to Outdoor Air flow per Person parameter of every space in my model. I can do this manualy, but I would like to have a measure that does this. I've seen different measures that either changes' spaces schedules or shift the existing ones, but I am not sure how to add a schedule to this parameter. Does anyone have suggestion or maybe a guideline on how to do this?

Thank you!

I am quite new in working with OpenStudion and EnergyPlus so I am not quite familiar with the software. I see that there are some measurements already developed to change the ventilation rate by a percentage, which basically adjusts the outdoor air flow per person value of each zone in the building. However this is done for the entire simulation time. I can add a fractional schedule to the Design Specification Outdoor Air Object. But I would like to create a measure that does this for me for any model. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on how to do this? I have seen measure already written to add and shift schedules, but as this is not a zone or space, I am not really sure how to do it.

Thank you
