I am woriking on a project that served by loop to loop heat pump.However, when I model it in eQUEST, a very strange probem occured,which is the electricity consumption metered by ELEC-METER is two times higher than the one reported by PS-H.Below is the output screenshot:
PS-H report
PS-F for EM2

The electricity meter is only attached to loop to loop heat pump.

Brian Fountain already replied to your duplicate post on equest-users. The problem is caused by using a dummy CHW loop and he described a work-around.
I have also modeled similar systems using the HEAT-PUMP chiller type if you still can't resolve the issue.
