Generate EP Output

Component Index > Honeybee > 10 | Energy | Energy > Generate EP Output

This component helps select simulation outputs that can be hooked into the "Honyebee_Export to OpenStudio" component. Outputs are taken from here:
http://bigladdersoftware.com/epx/docs/8-3/input-output-reference/
You can also use the "Honeybee_Read Result Dictionary" component after running a simulation to get a list of all possible outputs that you can request from a given simulation.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
zoneEnergyUse_zoneEnergyUse_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for basic building energy use such as heating, cooling, electricity for lights and electricity for plug loads for each zone.Goo
zoneGainsAndLosses_zoneGainsAndLosses_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for building gains and losses such as people gains, solar gains and infiltration losses/gains.Goo
zoneComfortMetrics_zoneComfortMetrics_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for the mean air temperature, mean radiant temperature, operative temperature, and relative humidity of each zone.Goo
comfortMapVariables_comfortMapVariables_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for the air flow and air heat gain of each zone, which is needed for the comfort map air stratification calculation.Goo
zoneHVACParams_zoneHVACParams_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for the fractions of heating/cooling loads that are latent vs. sensible as well as the the flow rate and temperature of supply air into each zone.Goo
surfaceTempAnalysis_surfaceTempAnalysis_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for the interior and exterior surface temperatures of the individual surfaces of each zone.Goo
surfaceEnergyAnalysis_surfaceEnergyAnalysis_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for the gains and losses through the individual surfaces of each zone.Goo
glazingSolarAnalysis_glazingSolarAnalysis_Set to "True" to have EnergyPlus solve for the transmitted beam, diffuse, and total solar gain through the individual window surfaces of each zone. These outputs are needed for Energy Shade Benefit Analysis.Goo
_loadType__loadType_An integer or text value to set the type of load outputs requested (sensible, latent, total). The default is set to "0 = Total" but you may want to change this to "1 = Sensible" for zone HVAC sizing, etc. Choose from the following options: 0 = Total 1 = Sensible 2 = LatentGoo
timestep_timestep_Specify a timestep by inputing the words 'hourly', 'daily', 'monthly' or 'annual'. The default is set to hourly.Goo
