python for building simulation archetypes
Retrieve, construct, simulate, convert and analyze building simulation templates
Archetypal is a Python package that helps handle building archetypes. The first public feature released in this version is the conversion of [EnergyPlus](https://energyplus.net) IDF models to Trnsys [TrnBuild](http://www.trnsys.com/features/suite-of-tools.php) Models (compatible with the multizone building model). For a list of features currently in development see the [In development](#in-development) section.
## In development
Many features are still in development and will become public as the development process continues. Here is a short overview of features that we are excited to release soon:
1. Building Complexity Reduction: A utility to transform a multizone EnergyPlus model to a two-zone normalized model. Such models are called building archetypes and are the foundation of the [UMI Energy Module](https://umidocs.readthedocs.io/en/latest/docs/model-setup-template.html). This tool will allow any EnergyPlus model to be imported into [UMI](http://web.mit.edu/sustainabledesignlab/projects/umi/index.html) and drastically speedup the UBEM process. 2. Database archetype creation: From open-source building model data sources such as the TABULA database, construct a building template and use in UMI. Variabilty in the parameters could be achieved to effectively pick out templates that follow a statistical distribution or a known distribution for some parameters in your area.
This work is developed by a small team of building energy simulation enthusiasts
