Abstract

Chapter  1 briefly mentioned the concept of OpenStudio Measures. These small scripts written in the Ruby programming language are a unique feature of OpenStudio and are key to the platform’s extensibility. Measures are most often used to implement model transformations that correspond to Energy Efficiency (EE) measures – hence their name. However, as we shall see, they can be used to query and transform OpenStudio models and associated data in a variety of ways. Throughout this text, whenever you see the word Measure capitalized, know that we’re referring to an OpenStudio script as opposed to an EE measure.
