class honeybee_energy.hvac.heatcool.gasunit.GasUnitHeater(identifier, vintage='ASHRAE_2013', equipment_type=None)[source]

Bases: honeybee_energy.hvac.heatcool._base._HeatCoolBase

Gas unit heating system. Intended for spaces only requiring heating.

Parameters
  • identifier – Text string for system identifier. Must be < 100 characters and not contain any EnergyPlus special characters. This will be used to identify the object across a model and in the exported IDF.

  • vintage

    Text for the vintage of the template system. This will be used to set efficiencies for various pieces of equipment within the system. Choose from the following.

    • DOE_Ref_Pre_1980

    • DOE_Ref_1980_2004

    • ASHRAE_2004

    • ASHRAE_2007

    • ASHRAE_2010

    • ASHRAE_2013

  • equipment_type

    Text for the specific type of the system and equipment. (Default: the first option below) Choose from.

    • GasHeaters

Properties:
  • identifier

  • display_name

  • vintage

  • equipment_type

  • schedules

ToString()

Overwrite .NET ToString.

duplicate()

Get a copy of this object.

classmethod from_dict(data)

Create a HVAC object from a dictionary.

Parameters

data – A HVAC dictionary in following the format below.

{
"type": "",  # text for the class name of the HVAC
"identifier": "Classroom1_System",  # identifier for the HVAC
"display_name": "Standard System",  # name for the HVAC
"vintage": "ASHRAE_2013",  # text for the vintage of the template
"equipment_type": ""  # text for the HVAC equipment type
}
classmethod from_dict_abridged(data, schedule_dict)

Create a HVAC object from an abridged dictionary.

Parameters
  • data – An abridged dictionary in following the format below.

  • schedule_dict – A dictionary with schedule identifiers as keys and honeybee schedule objects as values (either ScheduleRuleset or ScheduleFixedInterval). These will be used to assign the schedules to the Setpoint object.

{
"type": "",  # text for the class name of the HVAC
"identifier": "Classroom1_System",  # identifier for the HVAC
"display_name": "Standard System",  # name for the HVAC
"vintage": "ASHRAE_2013",  # text for the vintage of the template
"equipment_type": ""  # text for the HVAC equipment type
}
lock()
to_dict(abridged=False)

All air system dictionary representation.

Parameters

abridged – Boolean to note whether the full dictionary describing the object should be returned (False) or just an abridged version (True). This input currently has no effect but may eventually have one if schedule-type properties are exposed on this template.

property display_name

Get or set a string for the object name without any character restrictions.

If not set, this will be equal to the identifier.

property equipment_type

Get or set text for the system’s equipment specification.

For example, ‘VAV chiller with gas boiler reheat’.

property identifier

Get or set the text string for HVAC system identifier.

property schedules

Get an array of all the schedules associated with the HVAC system.

This property should be overwritten in each of the classes inheriting from the HVACSystem base class since each HVAC system is likely to have it’s own unique places where schedules are assigned. At a minimum, this property should return heating/cooling availability schedules.

property vintage

Get or set text to indicate the vintage of the template system.

Choose from the following options:

  • DOE_Ref_Pre_1980

  • DOE_Ref_1980_2004

  • ASHRAE_2004

  • ASHRAE_2007

  • ASHRAE_2010

  • ASHRAE_2013
