Hi there,

I was trying to model natural ventilation in Energy Plus and was wondering if anyone could help me with selecting the required Energy Plus objects. I want to control the window opening/closing area and time for the parametric simulation.

Thanks Divyanshu

Do you have any reason you need to use Airflow network? If not, I think ZoneVentilation:WindandStackOpenArea is the best object for your use.

One thing to note is that this object has a bug when controlling window opening/closing according to the indoor temperature.
