eQUEST Refrigeration

Hi All,

I would like to know if there is someone who can help me to create a Cold Storage energy model. Is it possible to model the cold storage in eQUEST standard and then open the file in to eQUEST refrigeration?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Antonio,

I don't know if you've received an answer yet, but the best method of making
a refrigeration model is to create the shell and building components using
the standard version of eQUEST since the refrigeration version does not have
a wizard mode. Once you have taken the standard model as far as you can go,
open it in the refrigeration version to begin adding your various
refrigeration loops and components. Hope this helps!

Hi Antonio,

I agree with Jason here. However, you will need to manually delete some keywords from the input file and adjust some keyword values in order for it to run in the refrigeration version of eQUEST without a slew of BDL warnings and errors.
