I tried to read the EnergyPlus documentation on page 12. I can't seem to understand what is the purpose of warmup convergence. I can't find any other sources for explanation probably because this is specific to this calculation engine.

The purpose is to establish history in the thermal mass of the building surfaces. All simulation engines use some method to initialize this thermal history, but it's not as visible in some tools.
