I have experimentally measured thousands of data regarding the chiller's inlet and outlet temperatures per hour for the whole year. This data is available in an excel sheet. How to import this data into energyplus idf file for simulation using EMS or Ep-py? and how to plugin excel with energy plus idf file in eppy?

@Brijesh a very similar question has been asked here, which mentions that EnergyPlus has a Schedule:File object that imports external schedule data in a CSV or other text file format into the IDF. You can read more about using this capability here.

You don't need EMS or Eppy. Does that answer your question?
