eQUEST process cooling water simulation: Energy Use Error of Process Load

1 post / 0 new


I have a project for factory energy simulation, where there is a lot of
process cooling water load.

It is a process cooling water load not a cooling load dissipated to the air
side by convection so it shall not be assigned to the receptacle
equipment of space.

When I tried to assign a process load on a chilled water loop, the report
showed it not only increased the energy use of HVAC system but also
increased the energy use of receptacle equipment.

Theoretically, process cooling water load shall only be carried out by the
chilled water system.

I don't know why it cause the energy use increase of receptacle equipment.

Would you please tell me how to solve the problem?
