Outdoor-Indoor Comfort: Simulation doesn't work

Hi everyone,

I’m Cristina and I’m trying to run an energy simulation to study how outdoor and indoor comfort change according to constructions zone. Considering the ground as a zone, I have set a grid for it, that I have modelled as in the script Outdoor_Microclimate_Map from Hydra, but simulation doesn’t work. I have tried to run it without this setting for the ground and it works fine, so I think that the problem is relative to ground zone.

I’m attaching 3d model and script:
Outdoor_Indoor_Comfort 23052018.gh (1.4 MB)
Model Outdoor_indoor_comfort 23052018.3dm (8.9 MB)

Reference script:
Outdoor_Microclimate_Map.gh (714.2 KB)

Thanks very much,


Ground Zone was not single-closed brep as a correct zone.

Hi @OmidmRashidi, i’ve tried with your solution for the ground, but simulation gives the following error:

This is the script with your changes:
Outdoor_Indoor_Comfort 29052018.gh (1.4 MB)

What does it refer this message of error?

Thanks to everyone will fix the problem,

This file worked at my end.

Hi, thanks for your answer! I’m trying to run the simulation, but it says that there is a problem with Ground Zone volume. What is your version of Energyplus and OpenStudio?

Thanks very much,


OpenStudio 2.1
EnergyPlus 8.5

Thanks very much for fixing my problem, now it works!! :slight_smile: I’ve downloaded these exact version of OpenStudio and Energy (with last versions it gave me errors, but now it seems that work fine!).

Thanks again,
