epluspar: Conduct parametric analysis on EnergyPlus models in R

epluspar is a free, open-source R package for conducting parametric analyses on EnergyPlus models. It is an extension of the eplusr package. epluspar provides new classes for conducting sensitivity analysis using the Morris method, optimization using Genetic Algorithm and calibration using Bayesian Theory. All the new classes introduced are based on the ParametricJob class in the eplusr package. The main difference mainly lies in the specific statistical method used for sampling parameter values when calling apply_measure() method. Few examples of the epluspar package have been shown in this paper.
