I'm doing some diagnostic simulations comparing EnergyPlus to another program (not DOE-2 :-)), and need to extract hourly variables for zone air temperature, inside surface temperature and heat fluxes through an interior wall. I took some old IDFs from 6 years ago, ran them through the IDFVersionUpdater to get Version 8.0 IDFs, and used the resultant reporting for the zone air temperature, but I'm not getting anything in the output *.eso.
Output:Variable,*,Site Outdoor Air Drybulb Temperature,Monthly; < this works
Output:Variable,*,Zone/Sys Air Temp,Hourly; < this does not work
Output:Variable,*,Zone Air System Sensible Cooling Rate,Monthly; < this works
Output:Variable,*,Zone Air System Sensible Heating Rate,Monthly; < this does not work
Also, what is the syntax for specifying the heat flux for a particular surface ? I tried this but it doesn't work:
*, !- Key_Value
HOUSE:AT-FLOOR2 Heat Flow, !- Variable_Name
Hourly; !- Reporting_Frequency
