[Equest-users] Variable Volume Help Needed!

I am modeling a building with an existing single zone 4-pipe chilled and hot water air handler unit that is currently constant volume but being converted to constant volume. The unit feeds many spaces through a single duct. I modeled the system as a single zone with heat (SZRH) system and tried to add in a variable speed drive and lower the minimum flow ratio, but can't get the fan speed to reduce when not needing 100% flow. I also tried modeling the system as a variable volume system (VAVS) and the airflow ramps down but then the program adds a VAV box for each zone, which isn't what is occurring. I am trying to control only to the worst case zone, as will be the installed case.
Which system type should I be using for modeling this system, and how do I get it to model as noted above?
I appreciate any help! Thanks,
