How to simulate hot water pipes heating system?

I'm going to simulate a greenhouse heating pipe system in EnergyPlus that contains boilers, Pumps and pipes.

Boilers heat the water then Pumps circulate the water through the pipes that have been placed in the greenhouse to warm the zone.

Pipes are shown in the picture below.

I have simulated pumps and boilers and all branches by Plantloop object but what I wasn't able to simulate was pipes that heated the zone.

I've used ZoneHVAC:Baseboard:Convective:Water instead of pipes to Complete the loop.

How can I use pipes instead of baseboard? is there any way?
