We suggest, for people who want to enter more complexities to:

a) Start with HVACTemplates -- these will automatically create the correct nodes and loops.  Then, you can modify once you have the basic start.

b) look at one of the example files that might suit your building.  -- e.g. the Benchmark files for Restaurant or whatever.

c) use the example file generator to generate a building that could be similar -- these can be complex builidngs.  (all the benchmarks started out being built from the EEFG).  It will have all the correct nodes in place.

Hope this helps jump start your cause.

Is there no specific tutorial that details the entry of nodes/loops because I have looked through what is available and nothing seems to be specific to my problem.  Sorry for the harsh words regarding the tutorial, I didn't mean anything malicious by it, I am just frustrated because I can't seem to figure out why my simulation won't run and the tutorial is quite remedial compared to an actual system that inolves multiple energy loops.
