Advanced HVAC Topics
As described in Chap. 4, there are three main categories of HVAC Equipment in EnergyPlus: Plant Loops, Air Loops, and Zone Equipment. This chapter goes into more detail for each of these categories, describing their configuration, sizing, control, and operation. HVAC is a complex topic, and for that reason this chapter only covers the most critical concepts and topics. The authors suggest reading the EnergyPlus Engineering Reference as a supplement to this chapter to learn more.
