Hello, i want to do a simulation (OpenStudio 2.6.0) and observe only the effects: number of people, people activity, lightning, electrical equipment and infiltration. Is it possible to use only these settings? Can I assign proper values ​​to my schedules or should I not change them? Why is the hours schedules of operation always empty? How do I set this schedule (hours of operation) correctly?

2018-10-28 23:55:01 -0500 marked best answer Question about OpenStudio and EnergyPlus proceeding

Hello guys! I just started working with simulations and I have a question: From what I've studied and understood, the way I'm doing is geometrically modeling my structure in Sketchup, along with the openstudio plugin and defining the thermal zones. The question is: Will i continue to use only Openstudio to perform assignment of loads, HVAC systems and other calculations? Or do I just do the part of the thermal zones and then I go to the EnergyPlus program and allocate what you need? For the videos and tutorials that i saw, most do everything within the openstudio, from the geometric modeling to obtaining the results of the simulations.

2018-10-25 13:32:04 -0500 marked best answer Question about opened surfaces (garage)

Hello everyone, how's everybody? So I'm doing the simulation in a clinic and I have a question:

the clinic has two floors and at the bottom, has a garage. This garage is open on the sides and I do not know if I create a thermal zone for it or leave it empty.

I will attach some photos with floor plans and geometry model in sketchup to try to explain my situation

Hello community! My trouble is about 2 ceiling height values in my construction. In these different places from the rest there are slabs with glazing for illumination. Can I enter the different heights? What should I change or beware of in my simulations with these height differences?
