Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] GroundHeatExchanger:Vertical


Check all your inputs.  Make sure the plant flow rate is being sized to the same flow rate as the pump and the GLHE.  Also, make sure your g-function values are based on that same flow rate as well.  This often occurs when there is a mismatched flow rate (the glhe runs for a while, then suddenly stops), so you may want to try running the loop under a constant flow rate, to at least diagnose that this is actually the problem.

Is there anything that I am doing wrong causes this error? Any possible fix?

Hope to hear from someone.

Thank you.
