Trouble Viewing Hourly Reports

5 posts / 0 new
Last post

Hi All,

When I run my simulation and then go to File, Export Hourly Results is
grayed out. The Output Option on the hourly reports is set to Print and
there is an On/Off Schedule set up. I have tried running the simulation
with all of the daily values for this schedule set at 1 and 0 and get
the same result both ways. My computer is on a network and is setup so
that the IT guy and myself are administrators I think. I saw the issue
with Vista and tried searching the C: drive for the output, but didn't
find anything. Maybe it is in a hidden file? Any ideas why I can not
click on the hourly reports and what I might do to remedy this

If you did not specify "Hourly Schedules" and you have not moved to "Detailed Data Edit" then you will not be able to export hourly results.

I have an error that says:

In S1 Sys (VAVS), Cooling coil leaving temperature must be at least 6F higher than entering water temp.

I have 44" entering CHW with a 12 degree delta T. Cold Air for the system is set to 54F. I thought with a chiller with a 12 degree delta T there shouldn't be the above error.
Any ideas?

My bet is that you have a pretty high dT across the fan (operating at > 5") causing your actually leaving air temperature off the cooling coil
to be less than 50F. I am pretty sure (although it has been a while)
that you can avoid this error and still maintain the same conditions if
you implement a reset schedule on your air temperature (even if you
don't actually reset it), rather than using the cool-min-temp only.
