[TRNSYS-users] Matlab calling multiple projects from Trnsys

  A TRNSYS project can only have one instance of Type56 in it. However, 
if you define two (or more) thermal zones that have no adjacencies 
between themselves then in effect you have modeled two separate buildings.

I know that users have gotten Matlab to call TRNSYS but it is not a 
feature in TRNSYS itself. If you want the coupling to work in that 
direction then you'll need to develop a communication link yourself.

kind regards,
