### Calculate Thermal load in EnergyPlus using Temperature output from FMU

Hello, I am trying to run a co-simulation where the FMU is an HVAC system created in Dymola and the room is modeled in EnergyPlus. The inputs and outputs of FMU and EnergyPlus model are: FMU Inputs: Room Heat Load Outputs: HVAC Air Flow Rate and Room Air Temperature Room Model Inputs: Room Air Temperature Output: Room Heat load. The idea is that the HVAC system(FMU) will obtain the heat load from E+ to calculate the temperature of the room. The E+ model will obtain the temperature of the room and using the Internal load profile calculate the thermal load of the room and send it back to the FMU.

I would like to know how to use external interface to use the temperature output of the FMU to calculate the Thermal load in E+ i.e how to link these variables

We are trying to create a system similar to the one in the following paper: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S037877881831764X
