PMV Output

Postby lancechen » Wed Jan 23, 2019 12:31 am

Hi there,

For thermal comfort analysis, is there a way to output all hourly PMV values for all the zones in one CSV within DesignBuilder? Or do I have to take it out to EP-Launch of E+?
At the moment, I only manage to output the PMVs for one zone at a time, which are quite time-consuming for data analysis of a larger building containing many zones.

Many thanks,

Luis Sousa

Hi Lance,

I would suggest to:
1. open the eplusout.eso file in DB Results Viewer ... cessor.htm
2. select the reported period
3. sort the report variable by name,
4. select the PMV output for all zones,
5. add these outputs to one graph,
6. change to grid view,
7. export to a CSV file.
