There are several tutorials available online. A Google search for "TRNSYS tutorial" gives these hits:

  1. How do I... (Tutorials)
  2. TRNSYS 17 Tutorials
  3. TRNSYS Simulation Studio - YouTube

Have you tried these tutorials?

I am also beginner in simulation (thermal buildings, Type 56) and I have to say I am not happy with the the tutorials available for TRNSYS. And I was seraching around a lot and could not easy understandable material. The official tutorials are written in such a way that exeprts in the field might understand them but for beginners it is vey difficult.

For type 56 I found 2 good video tutorials in spanisch which are quiet comprehensive: Simulación energética de edificios 1 Simulación energética de edificios 2

hi, dear Xandrika, your post was in 2014 but still difficult to find a tutorial. if you have any suggestion.? and also i studied ground heat transfer it is easy to see the effect if ground surface area larger than external walls.
