Packaged RTU

I am trying to model a packaged rooftop VAV unit. I have selected the type
PVAV but this does not allow me to add terminal units. I want my perimeter
zones to have fan powered VAV boxes while my interior zones will have
standard VAV boxes. Any idea how to add the VAV boxes?

Thanks in advance!

I believe that only the "Powered Induction Unit" system type in eQuest allows
you to model a VAV system with fan powered boxes (series or parallel). With
the PIU system type, you can model all FPT boxes, or a combination of FPT
boxes and standard boxes. Select the specific box type in the zone airflow
tab ? "Zone Terminal and Fans" ? "Terminal Type" ? Standard VAV, Series PIU,
Parallel PIU ...
