# Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: EIR Chiller Performance Curve Fitting

```Hi,

Ok, but I type Chinese Word very slowly and I worry about that I can see the simplified words in my computer. May be you can try it!

I live in Hong Kong and work at Government Department, so I have chance to use EnergyPlus to simulate various Government property in Hong Kong. Since I have successfully simulate two nos of the Government Buildings, those simulation results can reflect the actual energy use.

If you have any problem, please don't hesitate to discuss with me.

**Which university you study?

Dear Sam
Thank you very much for your help. And nice meeting you through
the internet. I am a graduate student in shanghai studying E+ for
about 4 months. Are you a chinese too? Maybe we speak our lanaguage
to discuss the issues about the software.
Is that OK for you?
