Equest-users Digest, Vol 107, Issue 1

If I only control lights, i.e., lower light schedule values from 2pm to 5pm, the lighting power consumption goes down as shown in Fig1 below.? ? ? ? ?Fig 1 Light power consumption with and without light control
What I don't understand is why the cooling consumption goes higher as shown in Fig 2, it should decrease due to decrease in lighting load.

? ? ? ? Fig 2 Cooling power consumption with and without light control

New to me (not really sure why it?s grayed out), but you could try manually inserting the model reference in the PRD file for the associated run(s).? ? Here?s an example of what that looks like in the interface (when you can access the tick box): ?. Versus what it looks like in the PRD file ? the relevant path looks like the 7th entry following ?PARAMETRIC_RUN?: ? Also I?m 99% certain the preceding ?TRUE? entry above is the state of the checkbox we?re concerned with.? Set that to TRUE as well. ? If you manually edit your PRD, then try re-opening / simulating that parametric, you?ll get a more informative error/caution to explain why it?s being disallowed in the first place.? Alternatively maybe it will just get ignored and won?t work? but worth a shot! ? On a related point:? I?ve been recently interested in fully deconstructing / reverse-engineering the structure of the PRD files for parametric analyses, and also understanding exactly how these inputs are leveraged to modify the INP file (preprocessing) prior to a parametric simulation.? Is anyone aware of any official/unofficial documentation already pulled together on this front? ? ~Nick ? Nick Caton, P.E., BEMP
