I am new to openstudio and i am trying to run a office building simulation to determine Cooling and Heating energy consume. I a model to test, i posted it at this link.

When i simulate it crashes with fatal error saying the following messages:

Severe * IP: IDF line~45517 Error detected in Object=COIL:COOLING:WATER, name=COIL COOLING WATER 2 * ~~~ ** Field [Air Outlet Node Name] is required but was blank

Severe * IP: IDF line~45543 Error detected in Object=COIL:COOLING:WATER, name=HW CHW FOUR PIPE INDUCTION TERMINAL CHW CLG COIL * ~~~ ** Field [Air Inlet Node Name] is required but was blank

I dont know exactly how to fix it.

Please could you give me a help looking at my model and showing me how to fix it?

Thank you.

Best Regards.

You have four cooling coils and three heating coils attached to your chilled and hot water loops that are not being used by any terminal units. You should delete these coils. In the HVAC Systems tab, navigate to your loops and click the 'x' on the lower right of the coils to delete them:
