In the Library of Openstudio, I found there is no component for air-source heat pump. So how should I model an VAV system with ASHP in OpenStudio?

(Btw, I see a measure called 'Aedg Office HVAC ASHP DOAS' in Library but I just cannot apply it successfully. If the measure can be used I think it's also an approach.)

Thx in advance!

I have used the openstudio-standardsimplementation. You can create a measure (or use a ruby file, IRB). I have pasted below some code.

require 'openstudio'
require 'openstudio-standards'

model = # load the existing model somehow

template = '90.1-2016' # or whatever
standard =

hot_water_loop = model.getPlantLoopByName('Hot Water Loop').get

    name: nil,
    cop: 3.65),true)

You can find the source code for the implementation here.

Hi thank you so much! I will do further try. Is it a OpenStudio measure or an EnergyPlus measure?

If you create it, this would be an OpenStudio measure
