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.

An R package for creating future weather files under climate changes for building energy simulation
Parametric analysis using EnergyPlus has been a powerful approach to enable investigation of environmental and energy performance for different design and retrofit design alternatives. However, the absence of streamlined workflow integrating model …
Motivation I am wondering if in EnergyPlus, it is possible to directly connect Coil:Heating:Electric and other coils with air terminal units. To achieve, I tried to extract HVAC diagrams of all EnergyPlus example files to see if there is any example demonstrating this.
Zone HVAC Design Objects Set design specifications of outdoor air Set zone, system and plant sizing parameters Zone HVAC Controls and Thermostats Set zone thermostats Zone HVAC Forced Air Units Zone HVAC components here should directly correct to zones and cannot connect to Zone HVAC Air Loop Terminal Units.
This is a half-day hands on workshop on eplusr. You will learn how to read, parse, modify EnergyPlus IDF and EPW files, conduct parametric simulations and collect results directly in R.
