Modelica IBPSA library
This is the development site for the Modelica IBPSA Library and its user guide.
Instructions for developers are available on the wiki.
The Modelica IBPSA library is a free open-source library with basic models that codify best practices for the implementation of models for building and community energy and control systems.
The development of the IBPSA library is organized through the IBPSA Project 1 (https://ibpsa.github.io/project1) of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA). The development was organized from 2012 to 2017 through the Annex 60 project (http://www.iea-annex60.org) of the Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme of the International Energy Agency (IEA EBC).
This library is typically not used directly by end-users. Rather, it is integrated by developers of other Modelica libraries for building and community energy systems, who then distribute it to end-users as part of their respective library. Currently, the IBPSA library is used as the core of these libraries:
- AixLib, from RWTH Aachen University, Germany: https://github.com/RWTH-EBC/AixLib
- Buildings, from LBNL, Berkeley, CA, USA: http://simulationresearch.lbl.gov/modelica
- BuildingSystems, from UdK Berlin, Germany: http://www.modelica-buildingsystems.de
- IDEAS from KU Leuven, Belgium: https://github.com/open-ideas/IDEAS
The Modelica IBPSA library is available under a 3-clause BSD-license. See Modelica IBPSA Library license .
