Guide for Module Developers — EnergyPlus 9.4

<< Prev | Table of Contents | Next >>


Akin to the libraries of other programs, EnergyPlus uses data sets. Data sets are similar to libraries but many items are contained in a single file (usually input file format or sometimes macro format). Developers are encouraged, as appropriate, to submit data sets along with new features. Some of the existing data sets include:

  • Materials properties

  • Construction elements (layers of materials)

  • Composite construction definitions (equivalent constructions for complex elements)

  • Solar Collector parameters

  • Economic Tariffs

  • Design Day definitions

  • Location definitions

  • Standard report definitions
