Run it with DHW and see what dhw load you get. The schedule for the process
load is same as that for DHW. Then put in a value for the process load and
play with it till you get the same value as the DHW (you can also calculate
it and avoid the iteration). The ground temp does not vary much for mild
locations - depending on how accurate you want to be, you can get the
hourly data for the ground temp and use that to be more precise in the
process load. It is basically 12 values - one for each month.

>> Dear All,
>> A residential building has a flat station for each dwelling unit, where a
>> single HW loop is branched into a secondary HW loop for space heating and a
>> secondary DWH loop. We are thinking of creating secondary loops for each of
>> the 90 dwelling units, as we believe that this will result in a more energy
>> efficient operation reflecting the operation principle of flat stations.
>> Anyway, eQuest keeps telling us that the Primary of a secondary DHW loop
>> has to be a DWH loop as well. How else do you suggest we model this case?
>> Thank you,
