2018-11-26 20:40:18 -0600 marked best answer How is fan power calculated

In air loops and packaged rooftop systems the input values for a fan, seen below, somehow equate to actual fan power, also seen here. What's the equation that OpenStudio/EnergyPlus uses to calculate the fan energy? Is there anywhere one can simply input the actual/measured fan energy?

2018-11-19 22:14:23 -0600 marked best answer lighting constant schedule only

I am trying to apply time/hourly schedules to the lighting and loads I have identified under "Space Types". It seems I am only able to drag and drop "constant schedules" into the schedules column. It won't let me insert schedules under my "Ruleset schedules". My workaround has just been to set a percentage, ie. lighting A only runs for 6 hours/day therefore 25%. This whoever does not ensure that I have correct electric demand profiles, as the loads are just divided into a smaller load that runs all the time.
