Invalid Heating.Cooling Setpoint Temperature Schedule Name

Hi Mostapha and Chris,

i’m getting into the following situation.

I’m defining Heat/Cool setpoint CSV files that are hooked into the HB_setEPZoneSchedules component.

I run the simulation and it fails but no warnings in the GH environment.

So i checked the error file produced and i get the following 3 severe ones:

** Severe ** ThermostatSetpoint:DualSetpoint=“SHOEBOX_HVAC DUAL SP CONTROL” invalid Heating Setpoint Temperature Schedule Name=“C:\LADYBUG\EPCSVSCHEDULES\HEATINGSC.CSV” not found. ** Severe ** ThermostatSetpoint:DualSetpoint=“SHOEBOX_HVAC DUAL SP CONTROL” invalid Cooling Setpoint Temperature Schedule Name=“C:\LADYBUG\EPCSVSCHEDULES\COOLINGSC.CSV” not found. ** Severe ** GetStagedDualSetpoint: Errors with invalid names in ZoneControl:Thermostat:StagedDualSetpoint objects.

I looked in the idf file and i noticed that in the HVACTemplate:Thermostat section the heating/cooling schedule names are taken from the CSV files instead from the previously define Schedule:File section. As a result E+ doesn’t recognize the schedules. See attached: Left correct definition, right wrong HB definition.

The fix is easy (i suppose), so, to let you know this small bug.



Hi Abraham. I think Alrejandro reported this and I fixed this once. I will check and get back to you. I assume that you are using the latest version. Right?

Always … :slight_smile:

I checked again and I have fixed this once:…

but Chris removed it when he updated Ideal loads system:…

Just updated the component and it should work fine now.

Ah. Very sorry about that. Thank you for fixing it, Mostapha.

Mostapha, have you seen that your fix has caused a bug elsewhere?

I posted the issue at the end of your commit:…

Thanks! It is fixed now.

Looking for others … :slight_smile:
