[EnergyPlus_Support] IDF Editor - Inch Pound Units
I was working in the IDF editor, and I switched the units to "inch-pound". I then went to the CoolingTower:VariableSpeed and added an object. The IDF Editor says that the default approach is 39*F and the default range is 42*F. This must be incorrect, as the default approach and range is usually around 6*F and 10*F respectively. After noticing this I went into the input/output PDF to see what it had to say. The input/output PDF is in SI units so it listed the default approach and range as 3.9*C and 5.6*C respectively. It seems that the IDF editor is doing a straight conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit when it should be
converting to Fahrenheit then subtracting 32*F. Has anyone else noticed this? Am I correct in noting this error, or does EnergyPlus make the correction automatically?
