Set up the Trnsys plugin at first use (Settings)

There are two entry points to set up the plugin and connect eveBIM to your Trnsys environment.

By clicking on the “Edit \ Settings…” menu then “Trnsys preferences” in order to input 2 values:

  • a schedule DB file, which contains schedules for person presence into a thermal zone ( a default file is provided with the plugin)
  • the root folder where Trnsys is installed

By the widget “Trnsys specifications” then “Simulation parameters” tab then “Files paths” in order to input 4 values:

  • path to material database (PrgWall.lib) which is usually located in the TrnBuild installation folder (WARNING: a PrgLay.lib file must also be in the same folder: it contains all layers referenced by material of the PrgWall.lib file. File names may be dfferent from original one, for example DEMO_Wall.lib and DEMO_Lay.lib)
  • path to window database (Usr_Win.lib) which is usually located in the TrnBuild installation folder
  • path to weather files folder (used to run a simulation directly from eveBIM)
  • path to a folder where simulation files will be generated (BUI and DECK files)
  • le chemin vers un dossier où seront générés les fichier BUI et DECK

These values have to be set only once at the first use of eveBIM-Trnsys. They are saved and automatically used each time.
