RE: [EnergyPlus_Support] MicroCHP Generator Air nodes

It looks like the error message is mistaken because of a tricky coding problem.  I suspect the problem really has to do with an incorrect Zone Name in the Generator:MicroCHP object. 


The Air Inlet Node can be set to be an outdoor air node -- use a separate OutdoorAir:Node input object to define it. 


You can report conditions at the Air Outlet Node using the various System Node output variables.

Subject: [EnergyPlus_Support] MicroCHP Generator Air nodes



i need your help about an error message i can't solve :

Severe ** Invalid, Fuel Temperature Reference Node Name =
** ~~~ ** Entered in Generator:MicroCHP=COGE_GAZ

I try to use a Generator:MicroCHP. I connected the water side easily with water heater. But, i have some difficulties to connect air nodes.
It is important to notice that i have specified "scheduled" in fuel temperature modeling mode for fuel supply.

I would like to connect the air inlet node from outdoor air. Is it possible or only an exhaust air from a zone is authorized? Do i need to create an air loop with a fan to feed the microCHP? I would also like to get the air outlet to monitor the temperature?

I hope that someone have some experience of microCHP and coulf help me.

Thank you for reading.
