Python energyplus linkage

Hello guys,

I want to run multiple simulations on energyplus where several setpoint temperatures, air flow rates, supply air temperatures are going to be varied in different zones of the building. I want to use python to run loops and run the entire simulations and provide results for each zone. Is there anyone who knows how to do this?

To run multiple simulations and change the parameters you can try eppy. OpenStudio is another choice but I don't know if they Python bindings are available by default. If you are trying to use Python as part of simulating an EMS system or modifying parameters during the timesteps of an single simulation you might want to look at the Group - Python Plugins/Python EMS in the InputOutputReference.pdf.

Thank you Jason for your reply. I went through the input output reference you mentioned before but I still couldn't figure out the way to do it, which is why I posted this question. Have you tried this before with eppy or OpenStudio?

Yes with eppy. You should read it's documentation
