Chilled Beams & AHUs

1 post / 0 new


I am modeling an office building with chilled beams. There are central air handlers delivering primary air with 19% min OA to the ACBs at a constant temperature year-round - all other conditioning/reheat to meet space setpoint is done by the chilled beams. 

I am looking for direction on how to represent this using induction units in eQuest - both to properly capture the AHU fan power, and to model the conditioning of the primary air by the chilled beams at each zone.

(I currently have an induction unit per zone with 0.19 minimum OA ratio, and the fan power (kW/cfm) of the air handler modeled as the design supply fan power of each induction unit.)

Any thoughts are appreciated - I hope my question is clear. 

Thank you!
