    Abstract

    The component-based modeling approach to the simulation of HVAC systems has been in used for many years. The approach not only supports plant simulation but also allows the integration of the building and plant domains. Frequently, however, the plant models do not match exactly the types being used in a given project and where they do, may not be able to provide the required information. To address such limitations research has been undertaken into alternative approaches. The aim of such research is to provide a modeling approach that is widely applicable and offers efficient code management and data sharing. Primitive Part (PP) modeling is one such effort, which employs generic, process-based elements to attain modeling flexibility. Recent efforts have been on the development of data structure and graphics that facilitates PP auto-connection via computer interface. This paper describes the approach using an example application and its suggested role within an integrative simulation environment.
