[Equest-users] Separate Ice Storage Loop

Hello all, I'm working on a project that is evaluating the addition of Ice or CHW thermal storage to an existing 1500+ ton hospital. Because the Thermal Storage equipment will be "supplementary," I will need a separate charge loop, with the existing CHW loop as the discharge loop.

I am encountering a problem a result of needing to assign a terminal/fan-coil to every loop, whereas in reality the charge loop will not have a terminal/fan-coil on it. I tried creating a dummy zone/coil for the charge loop so the model would run, but the flow through this loop doesn't reach chiller inputs.

Any help would be appreciated!
