Q: How do I define output variables for my simulation?

A: In your input file place the following statement:

Output:VariableDictionary,IDF;

Then you can cut and paste from the rdd file directly into your idf file. You must first run your simulation to create the rdd file. Output variables found in the rdd file are specific to the simulation and are based on the objects used in your input file.

Output:Variable,*,System Node Temp,hourly; !- HVAC Average [C]

Or change to this to get only the information for a single node:
Output:Variable,"The Name of the Node",System Node Temp,hourly; !- HVAC Average [C]

Where "The Name of the Node" is the specific node name for one or more nodes
