It seems the condenser type of VRF system in E+ Component Sizing Report is evaporative even we setup as air cooled in idf file.

Please someone check and confirm about this problem.

I ran the VariableRefrigerantFlow_5Zone example file and also changed the condenser type to EvaporativelyCooled. The results shown in the Component Sizing Summary using V8.4 appear correct.

The first table denotes the air-cooled simulation while the second table reflects the results of the evap-cooled simulation. The results show the values for autosized input fields.

Top one is air cooled, bottom is evaporatively cooled

2 tables for difference selection ? i can only get 1 table not both

I pasted the tables from 2 simulations into a single picture so you could see them both at once. The top table is air-cooled, the bottom table is evaporatively-cooled.
