Adding to EnergyPlus Source Code

Rehan Khalid's avatar


Can anyone here help me with getting started on how to access and get started with energyplus source code.

I want to add two actuators to the object ElectricEquipment:ITE:AirCooled, in order to control the mass flow rate and exit air temperature through the equipment. Currently, there is only one actuator available for controlling the power dissipated within the equipment.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi There.

I also want to add actuators to the source code. I am getting lost on which tutorial or documents to refer to . Could you please give some hints or share some useful links on that?

The source code is hosted in the EnergyPlus repository on GitHub. If you're unfamiliar with distributed version control using Git, then learning about that is a mandatory prerequisite. As far as I know most of the information for developers is in the Wiki section of the EnergyPlus repository.

  1. Git Documentation

  2. Developer Information
