Hi all,

I am trying to create the idf objects circled in the image below using the OpenStudio SDK however I am having a lot of trouble making sense of the SDK

For example there is the Generator_PhotovoltaicFields class reference seen here

I assume that this is this the class that I should use to add a photovoltaic generator to the model? If is, how do I use it?

Any example code or pointers on how to decipher the SDK would be most appreciated.

There are two measures for adding Simple PV on NREL Building Components Library which you can use as examples.

I would use the this API page to start with rather then the one you linked in your question.

Note that the above measures will create OS objects rather than E+ objects. Those objects will be translated once you will run your model. If you are interested in directly creating E+ objects please leave a comment to my answer and I will explain how to do that.
