Dear All,

I have an absorption chiller and compression chillers in an office
building, where the absorption chiller would run during daytime and
compression chillers during night time.

How would you have eQuest do this? Can I specify runtime schedules for
different equipment?

Thank you in advance,

Dear Omer,

You can schedule your chillers based on time with the help of equipment control and load management. Please follow the following steps:

1. Create Flag type schedules defining the chiller?s operating hours (1=ON, 0=OFF)

2. Create two different Equipment Control for each chiller.

3. Now, create Load Management for each of the equipment control defined above and assign the flag schedules.

I hope it will help.

Warm Regards,

Bhartendu Awasthi
