Abstract: Since its creation in the 1970s, the TRNSYS software package has undergone constant changes, improvements and additions. With the release of version 18 in early 2017 this process has continued. All aspects of the software package were reviewed and deficiencies determined. The TRNSYS development team then went about addressing these deficiencies and user requests in creating the newest version of the software. Changes and improvements were made in all aspects of the software: kernel, standard library, building modelling, and userexperience.
