Create CSV Schedule

Component Index > Honeybee > 07 | Energy | Schedule > Create CSV Schedule

Use this component to write custom .csv schedules for EnergyPlus using a list of numbers that you have in grasshopper. This can be used to make custom infiltration shcedules based on indoor thermal comdort (to mimic opening of windows), shading transparency shedules based on glare or thermal comfort, etc.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_values_valuesThe values to be written into the .csv schedule.Goo
units_units_Text for the units of the input values above. The default is "Dimensionless" for a fractional schedule. Possible inputs include "Dimensionless", "Temperature", "DeltaTemperature", "PrecipitationRate", "Angle", "ConvectionCoefficient", "ActivityLevel", "Velocity", "Capacity", "Power", "Availability", "Percent", "Control", and "Mode".Goo
analysisPeriod_analysisPeriod_If your input units do not represent a full year, use this input to specify the period of the year that the schedule applies to.Goo
timeStep_timeStep_If your connected _values do not represent a value for each hour (ie. one value for every half-hour), input an interger here to specify the timestep. Inputting 2 means that every 2 values indicate an hour (each value indicates a half-hour), etc.Goo
_scheduleName_scheduleNameInput a name for your schedule here. The default is "unnamedSchedule".Goo
_writeFile_writeFileSet to "True" to generate the .csv schedule.Goo

Outputs
