Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Unit Conversion for ESO file


The convertESOMTR.exe program is what performs the 
conversion of the eplusout.eso file from SI to IP units. It 
is located in a subdirectory of EnergyPlus called 
postprocess\convertESOMTRpgm. You may want to look at the 
EPL-Run.bat file to understand how it works. If in GenOpt 
you can run a batch file after each simulation, you probably 
could adapt some of the lines of EPL-Run.bat to perform the 
conversion. Also note, the convert.txt file contains the 
actual conversion factors used and can be modified for 
different units. It must be located in the "current" 
directory when the convertESOMTR.exe is executed.
