I am constantly seeing this warning:

* Warning * Calculated Relative Humidity out of range (PsyRhFnTdbWPb) * ~~~ * Routine=CalcMultiSpeedDXCoil:lowspeedoutlet, Environment=RUN PERIOD 1, at Simulation time=04/12 13:00 - 13:10 * ~~~ * Dry-Bulb= 3.21 Humidity Ratio= 4.897E-003 Calculated Relative Humidity [%]= 101.01 * ~~~ * Relative Humidity being reset to 100.0%


Any thoughts on if this is something I can ignore?

Hard to make a blanket comment without knowing more about what's happening in the model. A leaving dry-bulb temp of 3.2C (37.8F) is rather cold off a DX coil, so the airflow to capacity ratio for this coil may be too low.

Looks like increasing the Constant Minimum Airflow Fraction above the minimum ventilation rate was part of the issue. The warning persists, but was much less "severe" at a DB to 9.48 C for that same model.

Thanks Michael.
