What report variables are available for heat transfer through walls? The simulation shows the zone temperature is lower than outside temperature, but the heat transfer through walls appear negative. There are no report variables for simple heat transfe...
This is expected. The difference comes from interpolating hourly weather data for subhourly timesteps in EnergyPlus. In an hourly weather file, the temperatures and other state-point readings are the value at the time the reading was taken. For example, i...
Question: Is there a way to select all meters on output report (xxxx.mtr) file just by adding only one object? Currently, I have to go into IDF Editor, select "Output:Meter:MeterFileOnly" and add an object for each meter I want to be included on the xxxx....
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 t...
Q: I am specifying input for Output:Variables but pull-down menu under variable name field is showing blank with no options. Any help? A: You must run the simulation before anything will show in the dropdown menu (rdd/mdd files must be present)
Question: How do I report the heat transfer through a specific surface or group of surfaces? Answer: There is no such report at present. There is a long-standing project to create a new report which will try to sort out such component loads, but curr...
Question: I´m trying to size a boiler with a fan coil system. I would like to know the power of the boiler. Where can i find this data? Which output should i use in order to get it? Answer: There are many report variables in EnergyPlus. The ones ava...
