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.
