Good Afternoon I am confounded
Not sure what I'm doing wrong (or is eQuest really the villain this time) .
The day type in column "D" of the Hourly report block does not match the actual calendar day type. Day type in column "D" NOT = actual day type, however the day of week is reported correctly in the hourly Global Report Variable # 43. I am using AMY data for 2013 and have the "Simulation Options" run period set to run 2013. This is so that I can calibrate results to billing data.
In other words this is what I am seeing:
* January 1, 2013 actually was a Tuesday = Day of Week 3.
o Column "D" Day Type = 8 (a holiday )
o Var 43 (Day of Week) = 3
* January 2, 2013 a Wednesday
o Column "D" Day Type = 3
o Var 43 (Day of Week) = 4
>From looking at the hourly report it seems that the # in column "D" is used by Day Schedules. I am looking at systems that are reported (SS-J) as having peak cooling on July 7, a Sunday when the fans are off (as reported in the hourly report). Since column "D" is one day behind calendar and the peak (SS-J) was early morning (cool down) it probably was a Monday....... Ugh! I've never submerged my brain in DOE2 code and hope it is not needed now. Where is the # in Colum "D" generated?
Can anyone help?
