Hi everyone. I am a student learning to realize energy-saving simulation through on/off strategy. I found a paper 'Development and validation of an HVAC on/off controller in EnergyPlus for energy simulation of residential and small commercial buildings', which is very interesting and useful. However, I met some problems when I try to recreate the model.

In the code it did not mention what parameter it use in the beginning, so I infer that “Living_THeatSP” came from sensor-Zone Thermostat Heating Setpoint Temperature and “Living_TCool1SP” came from sensor-Zone Thermostat Cooling Setpoint Temperature, but in the subroutine part, the new set point temperature names are “Living_CoolSetpoint” and “Living_HeatSetpoint”, which are different from what I guessed. Is there any hidden information inside? What code should I supplement? (like the sensor part)? Do I need to reassign parameters for the subroutine?

Also, I only have a openstudio model. If I want to inject the ems into my model, how to convert the codes of EMS into a energyplus measure?

Thank you so much for your answer! I will really appreciate that!! image description image description image description image description

You should try Python EMS!

Thanks for your reply. I think I'm starting to figure out what parameters I need to add. But I do not have the confidence to do it with python. Anyway I will start to look at this! Thanks again
