[Hap-users] Boiler Hot Water Reset

I just had this issue. GBCI has not reviewed it yet, but my strategy was to average the two conditions. 180 with 130 degree return is a 50 degree delta-T. 150 with 130 degree is a 20 degree delta-T. I ran the simulation once with the boiler and plant at a 50 degree delta-T and ran it a second time with a 20 degree delta-T. Then I used the average values of the two runs. I left the system delta-T at 50 for both runs. The system delta-T did not seen to effect the simulation results.
A better approximation might be a weighted average using the ambient dry bulb in the TMY data to figure how many hours would be spent at each delta-T. Of course you'd want to exclude the hours when the system is not scheduled to operate.
When I emailed Carrier HAP support they said, "We cannot currently model Hot Water reset of boiler temperature in HAP 4.51. For purposes of LEED, you must write a narrative explaining that the program you are using for LEED does not have this capability.
We do have Supply Air Temp reset on a hot water coil in an air system.
Hot Water Boiler reset is on our list for a future version of HAP."

Has anyone had any luck modeling HW reset in HAP 4.51?
90.1-2007 Appendix G calls for this type of control in G184.108.40.206, and I am assuming that there must be some way of modeling this reset control in HAP.
Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.
