User Guide

This user guide provides instructions for how to use the free open-source Modelica Buildings library. The user guide covers how to

  • get started,
  • follow best practices when createing models and running simulations,
  • fix common problems in translating or simulating models,
  • automate pre- and post-processing of model inputs and outputs,
  • develop and contribute new models to the library, and
  • get help.

The following information can be found in the Modelica files rather than in this documentation:

  • The physical assumptions and the equations that the models are based on.
  • Advice as to which models may be used if multiple models may be available for similar equipment or physical phenomena.
