Hi Kartikay,

Javed Iqbal seems to have answered your question on the Bldg-Sim list today. Having looked at your models he has identified a number of potential issues with your data inputs. You can't assess ECMs until you are confident your model is set up and working correctly, particularly when you are modelling detailed EnergyPlus HVAC systems.

I presume you are fully familiar with the correct setup of such HVAC systems in real life, but you must also check that these systems have been appropriately sized and are operating correctly in the model. The only way to do that effectively is to review the "Summary" tab in the simulation results screen (here you can find all the sizing data etc.) and also, importantly, you must use the Results Viewer to analyse system performance in more detail. This will tell you HVAC system component flow rates and temperatures for example.
