[EnergyPlus_Support] Help with chillers


I am doing a Summer design day Calculation.  I have two Water cooled 
chiller:Electric to handle the peak day load.  Each chiller is only 
able to handle a volumetric flow rate of up to 0.0945 m^3/s based on 
how they are defined in the input file.  When I run the simulation 
though, the volumetric flow rate measured at the outlet node of the 
first chiller is 0.1968 m^3/s while the second chiller is 0, as is 
the bypass pipe.  Why is the simulation allowing the volumetric flow 
rate through the chiller to be more than the input says it can 

Another small issue is that in the Run control, when I change the 
input to do Zone sizing No, it does it anyway.  I believe it should 
be giving me an error because I have an autosize statement in the 
System sizing for minimum outdoor air.  It does give me an error 
though when I remove the zone sizing statements all together.

I am uploading my file Brashearhigh10-19new.idf in case you need to 
look at it.

Thank you in advance,

Joe Lewis
