Hello all,

I am trying to model natural ventilation + mixed-mode inside a single story house with 5 rooms. I have already built my geometry in SketchUp and imported my .idf file from OpenStudio. After reading the documentation about Energy Plus AFN model, it seems that model is well suited for my needs. I tried to look up in the forum for ways to add AFN measures through OpenStudio, but I didn't find anything conclusive. I am curious to know how you implemented AFN into your analysis if you've worked with it in the past? Especially, if there's any ways that it can be easily integrated with an idf file. I was thinking of just typing the different input references into my idf file and trying to run it with EnergyPlus, but this seems really tedious + not scalable to other projects. Any guidance/help would be appreciated!
