I want to know what´s the object that I've to use to model a only sensible heat recovery? I found in openstudio a sensible and latent heat recovery, but in my case I don't have latent heat recovery. Should I put the values of latent effectiveness to 0%?

Yes. This is noted in the I/O Reference description of the Latent Effectiveness fields for HeatExchanger:AirToAir:SensibleAndLatent: "Specify this value as 0.0 if the heat exchanger does not transfer latent energy."
