Use this component to assign OpenStudio Systems to your HBZones. By default, all HBZones are assigned an Ideal Air Loads system and this component can be used to change this to a real system from the OpenStudioHVACSystemsList component.
This component is also used to adjust the features of the HVAC system using the _airDetails_, _heatingDetails_, and _coolingDetails_. Without the inputs to these Details, template OpenStudio systems will be used.
