I'm looking for a way to implement PID control in DesignBuilder, this is possible using EMS, or I have to integrate with other software like Matlab, Modelica, Simulink etc. using BCVTB?

Another question would be where I can find the equations that my model is using, in this case the object - Controller:WaterCoil in the bisection method to find the flow thats matches with my setpoint request?

Thank you

Nice, definitively using Python API will be a good aproach to do this.

Thanks @Aaron Boranian
