The sizing routines will take latent loads into account, however, the
COIL:Water:SimpleCooling model has difficulties at high latent loads. For best
results, use COIL:Water:DetailedFlatCooling. You can let most fields default

No, that is not necessary. Sizing of the coil will be based on the mixed air
conditions using the design day outdoor conditions and the supply air
temperature and humidity that are specified in the SYSTEM SIZING object. The
sizing will be based on the total enthalpy change of the airstream including
sensible and latent load.
