Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate (query)

The schedule is there for your use and can be used to control infiltration if you have a good understanding of how infiltration affects your building. For example, if the HVAC system brings in large amounts of outside air the building will be positively pressurized. At these times, infiltration will be reduced or eliminated. Scheduling off infiltration at these times is usually a good approximation.

Hi all,

I have a query about, why we have to specify a schedule for ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate, if infiltration is something that we cannot control? I thought that the defferent between infiltration and ventilation is that the later can be control. If anyone can clear my mind in this I would be grateful, also what tepy of schedule you have to create for infiltration
