0. The best you can do is to turn on RH control on the window air conditioner,
see the WindACRHControl.idf example file. This will still overpredict the
latent load at times when the base latent removal dries the space below the RH

1. The activity level schedule is set at 66 W/person. This is very low and
will result in a low latent fraction. Note that the activity level table in
the Input Output Reference is in W/m2 and the values must be multiplied by
approximately 1.8 to represent the average adult. Also, the amount of latent
load from people is affected by the temperature and humidity in the zone. See
the Input Output Reference (p. 193) and the Engineering Reference (p. 324) for

2. The "DX Coil" cooling variables represent the gross cooling load on the
coil, including loads from outside air and fan heat.
The "Window AC" cooling variables represent the net cooling delivered to the
zone. If the outside air is hot and humid, the "DX Coil" values will be
larger. If the outside air is cool and dry, the "DX Coil" values will be
smaller than the "Window AC" values.
