                I believe that you can create a steam meter which will
represent purchased steam.  Right click on the top level of the project
tree under Water-Side HVAC tab and select, "Create Steam Meter...". as a
plant option. This will not, however, allow you to model any efficiency
losses from the distribution system (as far as I am aware).

Subject: [Bldg-sim] Purchased Steam



I am currently modeling a facility in which steam is purchased from a
distributor. ASHRAE says for the model, the baseline shall not be
modeled with a boiler. Does anyone have any feedback as to the best
approach to providing the steam without modeling a boiler system?
