Lighting and equipment load missmatch

ok, that was very helpful. thanks

I have another question. I put in a value of W/SM for the lighting and equipment load but in the results file it gives me a list room lighting and equipment heat value that is exactly 90% of the value I had requested. Can you explain how that is happening?



Just to clarify: you mean that when you look at the hourly lighting loads from the EPResults component those hourly loads are a fraction of your lighting load input?

If that is the question - that’s just because your load is being multiplied by a fractional schedule for the day (usually a separate one for weekdays, saturday, and sunday). There’s a decompose schedule component where you can see the fractions Honeybee uses for it’s load schedule.
