[TRNSYS-users] TRNSYS Message 427 - Type 15

I am reasonably sure that the problem does not lie in Type15. When a 
Type sends an error message to the messages() routine, it sends it own 
Type number so if the Type number is incorrectly keyed into the calling 
Type, it will appear to the end user as though the wrong Type generated 
the error message. The last two arguments in the call to messages() are 
the current Unit number and the current Type number.

As for the problem at hand, I think perhaps that you are using the 
Trnsys16 coding standard. There should be a line in your component that 
sets INFO(6) to the number of outputs that you need for your Type. You 
will get this error if you reference an output greater than the number 
of outputs that you reserved for Type. For example:

INFO(6) = 10
OUT(11) = someValue

Kind regards,
