[EnergyPlus_Support] Zone air mixing calculation with ideal HVAC idealLoad Air System


I was wondering if it is possible to calculate the air transfer threw open doors with an idealLoad Air System.

I have selected:
- idealLoad Air System with constant Heating and Cooling Setpoint
- ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate  constant ac/h
- ZoneVentilation:DesignFlowRate type exhaust constant ac/h

Now, I don't know how I can make EnergyPlus calculate the air FlowRate threw open doors. In fact, when I select ZoneMixing with a constant rate, it isn't accurate. As I want to design a passive building, the temperature in the kitchen and in the bathroom increase a lot when activity, causing climatisation to start even in winter because of insufficient air mixing. And if I increase artificially the air exchange rate, it isn't accurate for over rooms connection.

Thanks in advance.
