[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Solar Thermal Space Heating ?s

Hello Kristin & Mike,

I am trying to create something similar. Have you managed to resolve this issue? If yes, could you please post the working .idf file?

Mike advice was to replace the heat recovery loop with the solar collector loop. Is it all what needs to be done? Should, the Chilled Water Loop and Chilled Water Condenser Loop, be left untouched, or should they be deleted?

Thank you for any advice
Best regards
