I’m trying to understand if I can split an Honeybee/Ironbug Energy Simulation in multiple scripts using the GH “Data Input” and “Data Output” components to make the scripts “communicate” as shown in this post:
The idea is to isolate the HVAC system from the main simulation, and to test different HVAC scripts written with Ironbug in combination with the main script.
I took one of the Ironbug sample file from Hydrashare and tried to split the definition in two parts, isolating the HB_Export to OpenStudio component in the second part. When I run the simulation, it works using the HB HVAC components, but not with the Ironbug components.
Seems that when I try to push the Ironbug HVAC System through Data Input and Output, the connection between the Ironbug components and the HB_Export to OpenStudio component is lost and the simulation fails. Any ideas how to solve this?
Here is the link to the multiscript definition:
