The Modelica Buildings library 3.0.0 has been released on March 29, 2016.

Version 3.0.0 is a major new release.

The following major changes have been done:

  • Electrochromic windows have been added. See Buildings.Rooms.Examples.ElectroChromicWindow.
  • The models in Buildings.Fluid.Movers can now be configured to use three different control input signals: a continuous signal (depending on the model either normalized speed, speed in rpm, prescribed mass flow rate or prescribed head), discrete stages of these quantities, or on/off. The models also have been refactored to make their implementation clearer.
  • The new package Buildings.Fluid.HeatPumps has been added. This package contains models for idealized heat pumps whose COP changes proportional to the change in COP of a Carnot cycle, with an optional correction for the part load efficiency.
  • Various models, in particular in the package Buildings.Electrical, have been reformulated to comply with the Modelica Language Definition. All models comply with the pedantic Modelica check of Dymola.
