Thanks for answering.
So, to make sure I properly understand it, you mean that sizing calculations along the 24 h period of the SizingPeriod:DesignDay objects are exactly the same whatever you state on the Run Simulation for Sizing Periods field (YES or NO), and the only difference is on the fact that you have available or not the 24 h results for reporting.


Or else you mean that if stating NO in the Run Simulation for Sizing Periods field, sizing is done for a single point using the temperatures input with the SizingPeriod:DesignDay object, without checking for the most critical conditions along the 24 h period associated to the SizingPeriod:DesignDay object?

No -- the sizing calculations are done over a 24 hour period (for the Design Day) or whatever period (Weather file sizing period input) and use the critical/peak conditions for your building to calculate the appropriate sizes of supply air or components.

No -- Don't run the simuation for Sizing Periods means you will not have any results shown for the Output:Variable or Output:Meter objects you might have put in.  The sizing will still be done using the 24 hour period "described" by or selected by the objects.
