EnergyPlus can model an air conditioning system using an inverter but you would need to get performance data, usually from the equipment manufacturer, in order to model it. EnergyPlus has a number of unitary models with AirLoopHVAC:UnitarySystem being the most flexible. Since your equipment has an inverter, it may be a variable refrigerant flow and in that case there are specific models for that type of equipment in EnergyPlus.
