RE: [EnergyPlus_Support] Modeling Heat Tape

I’d suggest using ZoneHVAC:HighTemperatureRadiant with only the window surface(s) listed to receive any radiant fraction.

Subject: [EnergyPlus_Support] Modeling Heat Tape



Can anyone offer some help with modeling heat tape? I am modeling the potential for condensation on a single pane window in an unconditioned zone in a humid climate. One proposal is to use electric resistance heat tape to maintain the glass and frame above dewpoint. I'm unsure how to set up this kind of "system" in EPlus. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
