Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Problems on air flow windows and cooling coil
1.This could be valid. "Window Heat Loss" is heat flow from the zone into the
window unit. If cool air enters the window gap, it could increse the heat flow
from the zone through the inner pane of glass. If the "Window Gap Convective
Heat Flow" is positive and greater than the change in "Window Heat Loss", then
there is a net benefit from the airflow window. See the Input Output
Reference, p. 134, pdf p. 165, for explanations of the report variables. If
this does not explain what you are seeing, please submit your input file.
2a. This is how it is designed to work. From the Input Output Reference for
SYSTEM SIZING: "Field: Central cooling design supply air temperature:
The design supply air temperature for cooling in degrees Celsius. This should
be the temperature of the air exiting the central cooling coil."
2b. Try lowering the above value to account for the fan temperature rise. If
this does not solve the problem, then report the coil leaving temperature and
setpoint to verify if the coil is controlling properly. Also, check that the
quantity of outside air specified in the SIZING objects is consistent with the
outside air flow in the simulation. The sizing calculations only know
primarily the inputs in the SIZING objects.
