I want to perform co-simulation using 2 different FMUs. One FMU is my EnergyPlus model, the second FMU is the control algorithm developed in Matlab.

I am wondering whether is possible to use PyFMI to call the two FMUs and use PyFMI as my master controller. Do you know or have any example/documentation to explain how it can be done?

Yes, it is possible to use PyFMI to call the FMUs. Check out this article that describes how you can perform co-simulation with two FMUs:

Hi Thierry, can both FMUs be energyplus FMUs?

I suggest giving it a try.

I have been trying to connect two FMUs and the challenging part has been defining the "connections" between the two energyplus FMUs. Is there any guidance on that?
