There are a couple of tutorials in the documentation that step you through the creation of building models and HVAC system models in TRNSYS. See the Tutorials and Examples volumes of the documentation set that should be installed in the TRNSYS18\Documentation folder.

Thanks for your kind responses. I found the document and going through it. As for Youtube, I did not find any relevant video tutorial related to How to calculate energy consumption of a building, but I will appreciate it if you can help me with a link to a video tutorial. Thank you

There are not any official video tutorials for TRNSYS. The documentation is the only official help.

Thanks for the response. I’d appreciate if distinguished in the house could make an official video to that regard because not all of us are so smart/knowledgeable to understand the attached documents.
