Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Annual Peak cooling variable ?

ReadVars can't do this but you could write your own method to get this information.

I don't know if anyone has taken advantage of this feature of the .eso file.

Brent, thanks again for your help and sorry I did not understand your suggestion, but now understand that the number is in the eso file but do not understand how to get it to csv.

 Linda, or Brent I found the max value but am not sure how to "tell' readvarseso to write this to CSV? Would you have any advise> ? Could I for instance out he word "Max" after the output variable name in a .RVI file? Because this is for a large set of output it would be great if there was some way to do this with .RVI or MVI.
(So would such syntax as "Sensible Cooling Rate Max" work?)  The issue is that I need to have single values so that thousands of runs can be compared to each other at one time such as in this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ag7cD5ZV9QwRdFgyWjJXN3IyTVduc2VrcXRlLU95ZlE  

So from the eso file I have the following values: Program Version,EnergyPlus-64-MP, 9/17/2012 5:54 PM
1,5,Environment Title[],Latitude[degrees],Longitude[degrees],Time Zone[],Elevation[m]
2,6,Day of Simulation[],Month[],Day of Month[],DST Indicator[1=yes 0=no],Hour[],StartMinute[],EndMinute[],DayType
3,3,Cumulative Day of Simulation[],Month[],Day of Month[],DST Indicator[1=yes 0=no],DayType  ! When Daily Report Variables Requested
4,2,Cumulative Days of Simulation[],Month[]  ! When Monthly Report Variables Requested
5,1,Cumulative Days of Simulation[] ! When Run Period Report Variables Requested
170,11,BLOCK1:ZONE1,Zone/Sys Sensible Cooling Rate [W] !RunPeriod [Value,Min,Month,Day,Hour,Minute,Max,Month,Day,Hour,Minute]
