Is there a way I can model a ventilation heat recovery system in EnergyPlus. The schematic of the system is shown below. There is not any cooling or heating coils in the system, it just recovery most of the heat from the exhaust air.

You need to add a heat recovery object on your AHU. Your AHU should have the following components, Heat recovery, Outdoor air mixer, Outdoor air controller, Fan, possibly heating coil switched to off. You will also need an outdoor air equipment list, and an outdoor air system component. The heat exchanger needs to go first before the OA mixer. If you expand any of the templates they will have the OA stuff all set out and you just need to add the heat exchanger in.
