Explanation of the module's contents
This module includes four files:
build_eplus_v2.m: Constructs an EnergyPlus file for parametric runs using Rheinfelden_Template_Simplified.idf as a basis
run_eplus.m: Executes a batch run of the constructed EnergyPlus model.
Rheinfelden_Template_Simplified.idf: A template EnergyPlus model of a hypothetical 3 occupant, 100m2 structure in the Rheinfelden municipality of Switzerland, represented as a simple single zone structure connected with a heat network. build_eplus_v2.m populates this file with occupancy and thermal setpoint data in the form of parametric objects.
Rheinfelden.epw: A weather file for the Rheinfelden municipality of Switzerland, which serves as input to the above IDF file.
The files above require Matlab and EnergyPlus to run.
