Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] load problem
What you have done should be working. The outside air option in Purchased Air
is only useful for a peak load calculation, otherwise for what you are doing,
INFILTRATION is the best approach to add an outside air load. The purchased
air cooling load should increase when there is additional heat gain introduced
Turn on the report variables for infiltration heat gain and heat loss to
determine where the problem is. If these are zero during the cooling seaon,
then check the schedule and the coefficients on the infiltration object.
When modeling a full system, such as a VAV system, then outside air should be
introduced through an outside air system component with a mixing box and
outside air controller (see 5ZoneAuto.idf example file, and others).
