[Equest-users] Plenum Zone Creation

If you were to remove the 2-story atrium space with the skylights, you
might get your single plenum per floor.

Subject: [Equest-users] Plenum Zone Creation


I have found this subject discussed on the forums previously. However,
eQuest does not seem to be cooperating with me. I am attempting to
create one plenum zone per floor. I specified in the dd wizard one HVAC
system per floor but it is still creating plenum zones for every space.
This is going to be a 250,000 FT^2 building when I am finished with all
the shells. I have found in the past that when I get buildings this
large, eQuest begins running slow especially with multiple parametric
runs. I found that one way to alleviate this problem is to have on
plenum zone per floor.  Any help would be appreciated. Attached are the
.inp and the .pd2 files.


Thank you
