This is a component for running a previoulsy-generated .osm file through EnergyPlus.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Osm File Path_osmFilePathA full file path to an OpenStdio Model (.osm) file.Goo
Epw File Address_epwFileAddressA full file path to an epw weather file.Goo
Parallelparallel_Set to "True" to run multiple IDFs using multiple CPUs. Note that this input is only relevant when you have plugged in a list of OSM file addresses.Goo
Run It_runItSet to "True" to have the component generate an IDF file from the OSM file and run the IDF through through EnergyPlus. Set to "False" to not run the file (this is the default). You can also connect an integer for the following options: 0 = Do Not Run OSM and IDF thrrough EnergyPlus 1 = Run the OSM and IDF through EnergyPlus with a command prompt window that displays the progress of the simulation 2 = Run the OSM and IDF through EnergyPlus in the background (without the command line popup window). 3 = Generate an IDF from the OSM file but do not run it through EnergyPlusGoo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
OutreadMe!Report!String
Idf File AddressidfFileAddressThe file path of the IDF file that has been generated on your machine. This file is only generated when you set "runSimulation_" to "True."Goo
Result File AddressresultFileAddressThe address of the EnergyPlus result file.Goo
Eio File AddresseioFileAddressThe file path of the EIO file that has been generated on your machine. This file contains information about the sizes of all HVAC equipment from the simulation. This file is only generated when you set "runSimulation_" to "True."Goo
Rdd File AddressrddFileAddressThe file path of the Result Data Dictionary (.rdd) file that is generated after running the file through EnergyPlus. This file contains all possible outputs that can be requested from the EnergyPlus model. Use the "Honeybee_Read Result Dictionary" to see what outputs can be requested.Goo
