[TRNSYS-users] Parametric Studies in TRNSYS16

   I have not run into the problem that you describe. The "Time 
inconsistency" error might be due to a rounding problem. If you are using a 
time step that is represented by an infinitely repeating decimal number of 
hours (5 min = 0.41666666.... hours for example) then the Studio may be 
writing the time step as a truncated decimal. Why you would have a 
different result when running from the Studio versus running from TRNEdit 
is a mystery since as soon as a simulation is launched, the interface 
(whether Studio or TRNEdit) is totally irrelevant and all that matters is 
the text in the *.dck file. I would suggest sending the input file and 
*.bui to your distributor to see if they can help sort out the problem.
Kind regards,
