Re: [TRNSYS-users] parametric run

Thanks a lot Michaël, that will help.

Another question now...  For every run, type 56 needs two files named buildingN.trn and buildingN.bld where N is the number of the run.
I would like to use always the same file (so, without the "N"), is it possible ?
If not, is there a simple way to generate these files or do I have to manually copy n times a file and change their names n times ?

Thanks again in adavnce,

I am trying a parametric run.  I am wondering if I'm doing things right. I create a trnsys file in IIsiBat. I open the so created  .dck file in TRNSHELL. I replace some equations by a CONSTANT statement and create my parametric table.
But if I make any modification in IIsiBat, when I come back into TRNSHELL, I have to do these two operations again. Is that right ? (I hope mu explanation is not too confused...)

Unfortunately you are correct. There is no way back to IISiBat once you started editing a deck file in TRNSHELL (that is, there is a way back but you loose most changes).
Please note, however, that you can have CONSTANTS statements in IISiBat. You just have to enter them by hand in the "Simulation Cards" field in "Control Cards". You can use the constants in the project by typing their name in an initial value or parameter field (after setting the "type" to "string"). That way you can setup your simulation completely in IISiBat and just use TRNSHELL to run the parametric study.

Kind regards,
