Where can I read the Outdoor Air flow per Zone in CFM ou m³/h?

In Outdoor Air Summary - EnergyPlus report we can see only the Zone Volume and Mechanical Ventilation, but the Flow is not showed. Is there some another report to show this?

In the tabular reports, I would start by looking at the Standard 62.1 Summary which will show for each system the Outdoor Air Intake Flow - Vot for heating and cooling and for each zone the need for outdoor air.

Outdoor air is also shown in the tabular reports in the Component Sizing Summary report under Controller:OutdoorAir and it will show the minimum and maximum (using economizer) outdoor air flow in m3/s or CFM for each system.

The use of SI or IP units can be set in the OutputControl:Table:Style object.

@JasonGlazer I don't know why, but this report Component Sizing Summary - Controller Outdoor Air not are showing in this model specific. In another models is common that ar showed only some Air Loops, while other are not showed.

You probably don't have a Controller:OutdoorAir object that is getting autosized.
