I have recently started to work with OpenStudio and I was wondering if it was possible to simulate a typical house with photovoltaic pannels which fed electricity to a heat pump (like a air-air, split system) and, if anybody that already did something like this, had some tips for such case.

Thank you.

@Carlos Santos so you want the electricity generated from PV to ONLY be provided to the heat pump and not anything else in the house?

Yes, as a first case I would like to get the results for that situation and to obtain values like self consumption and self sufficiency. Later I could try to use the PV produced electricity for both the domestic load and the HP.

Thank you for your comment
