Chiller Sequencing and Chiller Curves

HI All,

Two questions regarding chillers:

1. Is it possible to establish a schedule to where one main chiller (a
new efficient one) operates all the time and a second chiller (old energy
hog one) only comes on line to cover peak conditions?

2. Is there a good tutorial out there for inputting custom chiller part
load data and or curves?

Many thanks!

For the first question -
You can use equipment control to set the efficient chiller sequence as 1
and the other as 2, and prorate load as no.

The only tutorial I've seen that includes custom chiller curves is this one:
