Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Error in Electrical Chiller Simulation
I am not sure I completely understand the question. High return water
temperature indicates the cooling coil flow rate is not high enough. Check the
cooling coil inputs. To answer your specific question, the only control you
have over chiller water flow rate is to set the chiller flow type to
"ConstantFlow", then the flow rate through the evaporator will always equal the
specified design flow rate.
