Exhaust Air - Heat Recovery Chiller

1 post / 0 new

Does anyone know whether or not EQUEST can be used to model a heat recovery chiller that is used to recover heat from an exhaust air stream? The system I am attempting to model will have a heat recovery chiller that pulls heat from heat recovery coils (essentially CHW coils) located in the exhaust air stream and rejects the heat to a hot water loop serving terminal unit HW coils. Is this possible?

At first glance, it would appear that the Loop-to-Loop Heat Pump would work. And it may work, but it appears that the use of Loop-to-Loop Heat Pump would require that a CHW loop be created and somehow attached to a cooling coil located in the exhaust air stream. This is exactly what the real system will be, but I have not been able to figure how to attach a CHW loop to the exhaust air stream in EQUEST.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
