  Error: Runtime error (AssertionException): analysis_period timestep must match that on theCollection header. 2 != 1

Hi @seghier ,

I think the message is pretty clear and that it’s happening because you plugged in a 2 for the _timestep_ input of the Analysis Period component.

Still, I realize that (if you want to work at a timestep of 2) it’s not obvious how you can take a hourly data collection at a timestep of 1 and convert it to have a timestep of 2 (essentially making it a half-hourly data collection). I recommend using the LB Convert to Timestep component to interpolate in between the hourly values of the data collection at a timestep of 1 to produce a data collection at a timestep of 2. Then, the data collection will have a timestep that’s aligned with the Analysis Period that you have there.
