BESMod is an open-source Modelica library. BESMod provides a modular approach towards domain-coupled building energy system simulations (cf. Figure 1). BESMod relies on existing component specialized model libraries for the underlying physics (cf. Figure 2). For the analysis of complex system simulations, BESMod uses user-friendly parameterization, consistent model interfaces, pre-calculated KPIs and debugging options.

The library is available at .

BESMod was developed within the project AGENT, which is publicly funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), promotional reference 03ET1495A. Further, motivation and ideas for BESMod emerged from the IBPSA Project 1, an international project conducted under the umbrella of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA).
