Question for the Energyplus example file:UserDefinedRoomAirPatterns.idf

I want to calculate the load of a large space using RoomAir:TemperaturePattern:NondimensionalHeight in "UserDefinedRoomAirPatterns.idf".

What does the “Thermostat Offset” in “NondimensionalHeight” mean?

I want to calculate the load using "IdealloadAirSystem" and setpoint schedules and temperature in HVACTemplate:Thermostat.

Is the temperature set here (Thermostat temperature) the same as the Thermostatic Offset temperature in RoomAir:TemperaturePattern:NondimensionalHeight?

If the Thermostat Offset in "NondimensionalHeight" is set, does it mean that the average temperature of the zone is fixed?
