Peak Cooling Load

Hi all,
?
I am a new member of the group. I work on visualdoe and Equest softwares.?I have a basic question with reference to the peak cooling load.
The Peak cooling load is very less when compared to the cooling capacity of the system (by more than 50%) in some of the projects. What is the reason for this? I am checking the Peak cooling load in SS-A report.
?
Thanks in advance.

The SS-A Peak Cooling is, of course, for the individual systems within a building. They are usually quite low as one does not usually specify the design cooling people, lights, equipment, etc in an energy model, which is what eQuest and Visual DOE represent.

You are also not having the peak internal loads coincide with each other and with the peak external cooling load.

I believe others on this forum can share similar experiences.

Mr. John,
?
Thank?you?for the reply. I have mentioned the design cooling people, lights, equipment, etc precisely for the projects. And also, if the peak load shown is not correct then we cannot use visual doe for sizing the equipment in the preliminary stage of the design. Is my understanding correct? Which report do we have to refer, to get the peak cooling load of the building?
?
Thank you in advance.

Hi

To view building HVAC peak load summary , refer to SS-D report. If you
want to get the peak cooling load refer this report.

SS- A report give us system load summary , ( I don't how you input data
for the system in wizard/ DD).
