Hey guys, I have a thermal chimney connected to a zone in E+. At the moment it seems it only increases the airflow through the zone. It is possible to use it as a heating device as well? And how do I configure it to do so?

Hey guys, I'm trying to model a swimming pool inside my building in E+, but I have never worked with water equipment and plant loops before, so I am looking for some basic know-how and guidelines (Maybe even a tutorial if anyone knows where to find that).

So i created my swimming pool object. Next step would be to create a HVACTemplate:Plant:MixedWaterLoop and a HVACTemplate:Plant:Boiler? How do I connect my pool to the loop? Through branches? Do I need to make a thermostat object to control the water temperature? It seems like that is included in the pool object.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mainly their evapotranspiration to see what affect trees and grass have on air temperatures and comfort.

Thanks! Yeah the swimming pool should do the trick. But i'm still struggling with the vegetation. Can I model it as a green roof material?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to model a big glass box with buildings inside like this one: image description

I would like to investigate the thermal comfort in the "3rd space". My idea is to introduce water and vegetation features to control the temperatures. Can I model their evapotranspirational abilities with EP?

Thanks for the help. I have some follow up questions though. How do I create this OtherSideCoefficients Object? At the moment I can only create another surface and reference it, but I don't know how to create the temperatures for it?

Let's say I make the temperature a schedule. Can I edit the scheduled value for the next time step of the simulation, while it is running?

Hey guys,

Is it possible to feed surface temperatures to EnergyPlus?

I am curious, because I have a wall I'm trying to simulate in Delphin and I need the room temperature as an input to calculate the surface temperature, and my surface temperature are influencing the room temperature. Is it possible to make such a link? So I what to calculate the surface temperature in Delphin, give it to EP, calculate the room temperature and then give that to Delphin and so on.

I hope you get what I'm trying to do, or otherwise feel free to ask.

Thanks in advance
