Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] questions about dx vav system
1. The VAV with no reheat terminal unit is not intended to provide heating
control. The airflow rate is actually fluctuating between the min flow and
max flow. When the supply air temperature switches over to heating operation,
it provides 35C air at the min flow rate. If the heating load is small, this
will overheat the zone and the zone will request cooling. The VAV box then
goes to full open trying to cool the space, but the supply air temperature is
high, so the space just gets hotter. This system will not work unless you vary
the heating supply air temperature using SET POINT MANAGER:WARMEST in which
case the supply air flow rate should remain constant at the min flow and the
supply air temperature will vary to meet the load.
2. There is a tiny discontinuity in the multispeed DX coil model when going
from just above low speed to just below low speed (top end of cycling region).
This discontinuity can occasionally cause the iterative solution to fail. This
has been fixed for the next release (CR 6355). To get around the problem in
this version, change the low speed capacity slightly.
