[TRNSYS-users] Number of plots per simulation type65d

You are not doing anything wrong. Setting that parameter to -1 simply 
sets the number of plots to 12 for an annual simulation. The scale of 
the x axis does not change.

What I prefer to do is to write an equation:

nPlots = (STOP-START)/168

and then use "nPlots" as the value of the Type65 parameter (hint: you'll 
have to change that parameter's units to "string" in v17 or to 
"variable" in v18). You will then get weekly plots from your Type65s.

kind regards,
