Use JESS Client with Legacy OpenStudio Plug-in
To be able to run EnergyPlus simulations remotely you need to do the following:
- If you have not installed the JESS Client for EP-Launch, please follow the steps 1 to 5 on the Instructions page
- If your EnergyPlus v7.2 is installed in
C:\EnergyPlusV7-2-0\, create a new text file named
runJESSclient.batin that folder
runJESSclient.bat(right click on the file name, and select edit), and paste in the following line:
java -jar "C:\EnergyPlusV7-2-0\JESS_Client_v1.3 build 5"\JESS_Client.jar -cfg "C:\EnergyPlusV7-2-0\JESS_Client_v1.3 build 5"\client.cfg -log "C:\EnergyPlusV7-2-0\JESS_Client_v1.3 build 5"\log4j.cfg -job ./ -type STD_SINGLE_JOB -output ./
runJESSclient.bat. If you are on a Mac or your EnergyPlus v7.2 is installed elsewhere, please adjust the paths accordingly
- Start Google SketchUp, and go to menu “Plugins > Legacy OpenStudio > Preferences”. In the Preferences window (see screenshot below), browse to
C:\EnergyPlusV7-2-0\runJESSclient.batin the EnergyPlus Engine section
- Click on OK to confirm changes.
Now if you run simulation within OpenStudio plugin, the simulation job will be sent to the DMU cluster.
