[TRNSYS-users] Type 107 absorption chiller data

Look. Just because the program issues a warning that the chiller is
operating outside of the conditions that you have data for doesn't make it
VERY wrong. The data set you entered gets translated into curves and the
program will extrapolate along the curve. It just means that there is no
garauntee that the performance at these conditions is accurate because
there is no test data provided to verify this. At these extremes, the
performance deviation is also more extreme and the extrapolated "fit" may
not be a good one. But changing the first column only and leaving the other
two as is is MORE wrong, because you change the entire performance of the
machine and it does not even fit the data in the range where it could. I
would match the performance curves to those of the data that I have, and
try and find out why my system is operating at temperatures that the
chiller was not designed for.
