2015-05-05 09:02:25 -0600 asked a question How to set an EMS Actuator to values from a Schedule:File object?

I have an actuator in EnergyPlus and would like to set the value of that actuator to a value obtained from a CSV file at every time step.

I figured I can use SCHEDULE:FILE to read in the values and use an ENERGYMANAGEMENTSYSTEM:SENSOR to map those to a EMS variable.

Do I then create a ENERGYMANAGEMENTSYSTEM:PROGRAM to write the value from one place to another? (it seems a bit verbose...)
