GSHP with 3.61 and 3.63b. PV power usage

I tried to run 3,63b with a GSHP input file that ran with 3.61. I got the following caution and error messages shown below and the SIM reports stopped after loads. The BDL file shows that the program ran all the way through with no error messages. How do I fix the input for 3.63b so that this 3.61 input file runs?
**CAUTION**********************************************************************
In curve: CYCLING-PUMP the dependent value
is exceeding the limits.
Value/Min/Max/First time: 1.015 0.020 1.000 1/ 2/ 8

***ERROR***********************************************************************
Ground-loop HX: GROUND-HX-1
is undersized for the load and is producing an extreme
temperature of -12F. Mon/Day/Hr: 1/ 2/ 8

How does eQUEST distribute the PV generated power to lights, equipment, cooling, pumps & fans in the BEPS report? Can the details be viewed in one of the other reports

Check the depth of your wells. I believe the defaults have changed in
3.63. Just a thought.

Varkie,
?
Maybe you need to check the depth of vertical well and num of identical well fields under Ground Loop Heat Exchanger Properties. Also, you can check min and max ground loop temperature in DOE2 PS-H report.
?
Hope it helps!?
