I've seen models that have both EnergyPlus modules and apart from that, has a PythonActor module to interface (send and receive data, etc).

The PythonActor starts by receiving data first. ( using self.input.get() [so some data from E+ is passed onto the pythonActor, I presume] )

Can someone please explain, at a very detailed and microscopic level, as to what happens when I click the "Run" button on the model (and henceforth). {basic skeletal model is shown in the picture}

I suggest to look at and search for the Class PythonScript. You can also find some details about the SDF director. Aditional information about the SDF director can also be found

If you want to know the details about the Simulator Actor I suggest to read which is also available as technical report
