1. Define a new input variable in PREBID (click on the "Inputs" Button at the project window; click on "add" ...)
2. Use the new variable for e.g. GAINS; open the gains type manager window; click on one of the blue arrows -> dialog opens; choose "Input" and enter your new variable.
3. The new variable should be available in IIsibat or in your deck so you can use a data reader for your real data and connect the output with the new
Input variable of PREBID.

Have a lot of fun

Betreff: [TRNSYS-users] Gains in a building


I have TRNSYS 15.


I would like to know if it is possible to specify GAINS (or other controls such as VENTILATION.) with an input file, instead of a constant value, an input or a schedule. 

I have real data; I want to calibrate my model with those data. The actual gains do not follow a DAY or WEEK schedule.


Kind regards,
