Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Heating occuring past the heating setpoint
I've looked at the "Big Lecture Theatre" a bit and it appears that you are
caught in one of the quirks of the SINGLE ZONE REHEAT set point manager. When
the zone is floating in the deadband, this set point manager requests supply
air that is at the zone air temperature (attempting to deliver no heating or
cooling to the zone). If you report the node temperature and setpoint at the
air loop outlet node, you can see this behavior. I see you also have several
MIXING objects which can contribute to some control difficulties. For this
particular system (constant volume terminal reheat), you may be able to achieve
better control by using BASEBOARD HEATER:WATER:CONVECTIVE with DIRECT AIR
instead of a reheat coil. Give the air terminal unit priority 1 and then the
baseboard as priority 2. See the CVBbRh example file.
