Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Performance curve

Don asked me to forward this to the group as he is having a little trouble 
with yahoo right now:

The "typical" performance curves provided in WindACAuto.idf were taken from 
DOE-2.1E for a packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC).

I'm not aware of other "typical" performance curves that are already 
available for window air conditioners, but maybe others in this user group 
may have some suggestions.

Except for the cycling performance curve (WindACPLFFPLR), the other DX coil 
performance curves are simply curve fits of steady-state performance 
information from equipment manufacturers. If you want to model the 
performance of a specific window air conditioner, I suggest you contact the 
manufacturer for the steady-state performance data.  From this data, you 
should be able to derive the performance curves that are required by 
EnergyPlus (see IO Reference and Engineering Document sections for the 
object COIL:DX:CoolingBypassFactorEmpirical).
