Is there a way to model hot gas reheat in OpenStudio? Currently the only way I have been able to model it is to export an idf from OpenStudio and add the Coil:Heat:Desuperheater in the idf Editor then run the simulation with EP-Launch.

We do have CoilHeatingDesuperheater in the API, but I think you would have to use a measure to add this. I don't know if it is in GUI yet.

Thanks David. Is it available from the BCL? I think it would be a commonly used object.

Has anyone created a measure to add a Coil:Heat:Desuperheater to OpenStudio?

I'm not aware of any.

Any updates on this? Hot gas reheat is becoming increasingly common in DX units for DOAS. It would be nice to have a measure that could insert this object via OpenStudio

In the HVAC System Panel, you have to replace the object: AirTerminal:SingleDuct:Uncontrolled by AirTerminal:SingleDuct:ConstantVolume:Reheat, just remove the default AirTerminal, and look for the new AirTerminal in the Library Tab. After you have dragged it, you'll see in the Edit tab the "OS:Coil:Heating:Gas" where you can modify your coil.
