HW Two Pipe Induction Terminals are added into my loop, shown in figure below. It is connected to the hot water loop and there is no cooling coil in the terminal. I received following error messages. What does that mean ? And there is no cooling coil in the unit, is this a Openstudio Bug ?

A file that can replicate the error is in this link link text

@Kyle Benne Could you please help with this ?

Can you provide your file or of a Minimal, Complete and Verifiable Example (ie a very simple model in which you can reproduce the error)?

@Julien Marrec Yes, I made a very simple file to replicate the error. link text

Was this model created using the OS API or did you make it through the OS Application? I'm wondering about the origin of the terminal unit. If it came from drag and drop in the app then it suggests a problem with the App's built in HVAC library.

Dragging and dropping the object titled 'HW Two Pipe Induction Terminal' (seen here) creates the terminal with the same configuration he used in his test model (AirTerminal:SingleDuct:ConstantVolume:FourPipeInduction with one Coil:Heating:Water) which I don't believe is valid.

Partially an OS bug, although in my opinion it's a poorly written EnergyPlus error. Pretty sure you can't use AirTerminal:SingleDuct:ConstantVolume:FourPipeInduction with only one coil. Based on the way the error checking is written it is expecting to see an object there as there isn't a 'blank' case written. The rest of the code for that object is definitely written for both coils being present. The OS bug comes into play because the configuration for the object labeled 'HW Two Pipe Induction Terminal' isn't valid, again, because of the missing CHW coil.

Solution: If you really want a reheat induction terminal I'd just use a configuration with a CHW coil that has the availability set to always off.

Thanks, that's what I did as a solution.
