Use this component to generate a seasonal schedule (aka. a schedule composed of different weekly schedules). Using the weekSched outputs of the other schedule generating components, you can combine these to create a yearly schedule that has different week schedules for different times of the year.

Sched IDFTextschedIDFTextThe text needed to tell EnergyPlus how to run the schedule. If you are done creating/editing a shcedule with this component, you may want to make your GH document smaller by internalizing this IDF text and using the "Honeybee_Add To EnergyPlus Library" component to add the schedule to the memory the next time you open the GH file.
