Hello, I'm modeling a plant in which a constant-speed circulation pump in the condenser loop must be on/off according to the zone air source heat pump on/off profile. Is there any set point-manager which is appropriate for that? Thank you so much.

If you set the 'Pump Control Type' field to 'Intermittent', the pump should only run when there is demand from the coils attached to the demand side of the loop. When the heat pump coils are scheduled off, there should be no demand and therefore no flow.
