AnalysisPeriod with occupancyGenerator _fromHour_ input issue?


#1

Hi there,
i think this is serious, or i am seriously wrong:

I connect the AnalysisPeriod to the occupancyGenerator to create a Daysim occupancy csv, to be used for annual analysis, in my case daylight autonomy results reading.

When i input from 9:00 to 17:00 (fromHour = 9 and toHour =17), the occupancy csv created is actually from 8:00 to 17:00.
The occupancyGenerator default hourly schedule is also set to create a “from 9:00 to 17:00” schedule, but creates a csv with occupancy from 8:00 to 17:00.

This means that there is always an extra hour added in the beginning of the hourly period for each day. 9:00 to 17:00 should be 8 hours, but the csv created has 9 hours as occupied per day.

Can somebody check that too?
Its either the AnalysisPeriod or the occupancyGenerator or their combination or i am wrong somewhere.
