Title 24 Savings By Design Compliance Engine Bugs?

1 post / 0 new

I'm trying to run the Title 24 Savings By Design Compliance

Engine for eQuest but am encountering a problem with errors

that seem "buggy" to me.

This is the sequence of the run::

1)I hit the Compliance Analysis Engine button and in the

Options window, I select:

Energy Code & Version: Savings by Design - T24, 2008 - v1


Compliance Analysis Type: Preliminary

Simulation Output: Minimal Reporting (fastest)

And I check "Store Intermediate Simulation Models".

2)After evaluating the rule set, a User Prompt pops up that

says: "The ruleset processor has posted the following user

prompts: --At least on SPACE in the building has DOE 2.2

inputs for automatic daylighting controls. These will be

ignored for Title 24 compliance analysis Use prescriptive

lighting control credits instead. -At least one HVAC system

has minimum ventilation properties assigned. These will be

ignored for compliance analysis. Enter ventilation rates

using SPACE and ZONE properties. -Circulation loop: All user

input process loads will be removed for compliance analysis.

Would you like to Continue performing the analysis, or Abort?

3)I click "Continue"

4)The program runs through the compliance engine steps and

gets to "Step 2". It runs through "Initializing Ruleset and

Examining Inputs", "Generating Proposed Building

Description", "Performing Proposed HVAC Sizing Run", Runs

the BDL Load File

5)The Error window appears and reads: "Compliance Analysis

Error: Error(s) encountered Performing Proposed HVAC-Sizing


6)I hit "OK"

7)And that's it. No other messages, no more engine running.

8)When I look in the project folder, eQuest has generated

both the T24 Proposed.inp and the SBD Propsed.inp

Bottomline: Has anyone encountered something similar to

this? If Yes, how did you proceed?

Thanks in advance for any help, suggestions, or comments.
