[Bldg-sim] Sea water condenser cooling for chiller

eQUEST can model a water cooled chiller attached to a condenser water loop. You can attach the condenser loop to a ground loop heat exchanger.

Haven’t tried this myself, but there is an option for a lake/well loop where you can attach a temperature schedule to the loop. I would try experimenting with this.

It appears eQuest cannot use anything but air to cool chillers. I believe water source heat pumps can. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to model this?
