The DOE-2.1e program can simulate all of the systems that 
you described.  Combining electric centrifugal and direct 
fired absorption chillers in a single plant with controls I 
have done many times and it works well.  The chillers can 
be sequenced in a variety of ways to meet the load and the 
sequencing can be modified hourly by schedules.   

All three items are well documented in the "DOE-2 
Supplement Version 2.1e" by Winkelmann, et al, November 
1993 and comes with the DOE-2 documentation package.
