Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] PTHP dehumidification

  Which version of EnergyPlus are you using?

Figure 130 in the Input-Output Reference for version 5.0 (latest) is 
"Schematic of the Balanced Flow Desiccant Heat Exchanger"... not 
Packaged Terminal Heat Pump.

> Have a model working with PHTPs giving results for temperature.  IO ref Figure 130 implies that a PTHP will do dehum (cooling coil before heating coil) however it only takes a Thermostat input.  IO ref page 1198 suggests that if a ZoneControl:Humidistat is added and if my equipiment is capable of dehumidifying it will (however ESO output shows uncontrolled RH within the zone).  Has anyone had any sucess getting a PTHP to dehumidify?

What controller type have people had sucess using with water based air handlers doing dehum?
