Reg: Hourly Report Block Output - Thermal Zone

Hi Everyone

I am trying to the view the 8760 output of zone temperatures for my spaces to analyze when the cooling and heating are kicking in. So, I go to hourly report block and select variable type " thermal zone" and selected " Current hour zone temp " and " current hour zone thermostat setting". When I run my output report, the values generated for the two columns are zeros for 8760hrs.

So, I went to different variable type like " HVAC system" and selected " air leaving heat coil temp " etc and ran the output file and it works and I see the values I was expecting to see, that verified that my hourly report block was working or I am creating the hourly report block in the right manner.

Then I went back to variable type " Thermal zone" again and selected different output selection like load etc, zero values in the output file.

Then thought probably the space I am selecting is in error, so selected another space to check if values can be seen, but no luck, for thermal zone variable , I am not seeing any numbers only zeros.

I checked the equest archives online, if there is any solution to this problem, but everyone was mentioning that it can be done and describing the same procedure above.

I am thinking, this should be a very silly issue and I am not able to identify it. If anyone can let me know, what I am doing wrong and guide in the right direction, that would be of loads of help.

Thank you

Can you post your .pd2 and .inp files to the list? It'll be easier to
understand what's going on if we can look at the model directly.

Hi Steven
Please find my .pd2 and .inp file in the attachement above. Just, now I tried a sample project with just two zones to see if I can see the thermal zone output, and I can see the output for that sample project, but not for this one. Thank you for your reply.
