Revision history [back]

Internally, EnergyPlus supports any number of equipment in a PlantEquipmentList (and CondenserEquipmentList) but the input definition in the IDD file is hard-coded to 10 (not extensible). This will be fixed for the version 9.0 release, see issue #6871.

Note as of v8.9, any changes to the idd file require that EnergyPlus be rebuilt to propogate those changes to the internal JSON schema. If you happen to be using v8.8 or earlier, you can edit the idd file to make these objects extensible and it should run fine with more than 10 pieces of equipment.
