[EnergyPlus_Support] Simulation Parameters, Time Steps

Time steps recommended in E+ is 4 for non-HVAC and 6 for HVAC calculations.
Does it mean using time step of 1 will cause E+ to diverge or sacrifice the accuracy?

Actually, 4 or 6 Time steps per hour are necessary for the HVAC calculations.  The heat balance simulation will give reasonable results at 1, 4, or 6 Time steps per hour.

Note that the Time Step value must be evenly divisible into 60 -- therefore is limited to:
