Modeling Self Contained DX AHUs (Water Cooled)

Does anybody know the best way to model an AHU with internal compressor that is water cooled with an external tower? The AHU sits in a insulated mechanical room with return air and OA dumped directly into the Mech room. I know eQuest has the capability to do this, however you do not have the ability to choose whether the VAVs are parallel or series boxes. So I started a model in VisualDOE, and I think the water loop heat pump is the closest VisualDOE can get to this system, however I would like to see if anyone has successfully modeled this type of system.

I am trying to introduce E-quest to my students. I will appreciate any
information about a self guided tutorial . This should be a short tutorial.

Thank you

Although slightly outdated, the easiest and most comprehensive tutorial
is probably the one located on the eQUEST website:

Just scroll down the page a little bit and you will find the file.

Good luck.
