No economizer wanted

Hello, everyone,

I have a PVAVS system for a building in Florida, which, obviously, will
not have an economizer. Unfortunately, in the "Outside Air and Economizer"
tab under the "Outside Air" tab of the "Air-Side HVAC System Parameters"
section, there is no apparent way to tell eQuest that I do not have an
economizer. How can I tell eQuest that I don't have an economizer?
More generally, how can I tell eQuest that a certain feature or
component does not exist? In lighting, I can at least force the photometric
data to be ignored in electrical power calculations by choosing the
"Luminaire Count" method. However, for many things, there doesn't seem to
be a way to opt-out.

Lars Fetzek, EI

Set your OA control to fixed fraction, then it will not open for free
cooling. (although it surprises me that there is no benefit to free
cooling in Florida. Perhaps I need to visit -- but I think I'll wait
until winter here!)
