Hello, I am trying to run a co-simulation where the FMU is an HVAC system created in Dymola and the room is modeled in EnergyPlus. The inputs and outputs of FMU and EnergyPlus model are:

FMU Inputs: Room Heat Load ;Outputs: HVAC Air Flow Rate and Room Air Temperature

Room Model Inputs: Room Air Temperature ;Output: Room Heat load.

The idea is that the HVAC system(FMU) will obtain the heat load from E+ to calculate the temperature of the room. The E+ model will obtain the temperature of the room and using the Internal load profile calculate the thermal load of the room and send it back to the FMU.

I would like to know how to use external interface to use the temperature output of the FMU to calculate the Thermal load in E+ i.e how to link these variables

We are trying to create a system similar to the one in the following paper:
