RE: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Energy Tariff definitions
Following up on this discussion, and with many thanks to Jason Glazer, here are some notes that may be helpful for your own efforts.
As background, I was modeling a building for LEED certification. The ?Baseline? HVAC system was easily modeled by E+ and so was the electricity rate structure. The Proposed system was not so convenient and required some post-processing of the energy meter data to correctly reflect energy consumption. Therefore, the Tariff objects were useless and cost calculations had to be done as a post-process. I was therefore trying to make sure the post-process cost calculations matched the E+ Tariff calculations.
The main uncertainty (for me) was the definitions of the various demand periods. Jason Glazer helped with the two shown below ? others are similar.
The other important factor is to make the Meter objects use ?timestep? as the reporting frequency.
