I found out that the calculated size of chiller is the same for having one chiller in the loop or two, or three or even more. Is it possible to let the OS automatically split the chiller size equally ?

Or has it to be done by hard size ? (e.g size of one chiller / number of chillers)

Thank you

The 'Sizing Factor' field in your chiller object can be used to distribute the peak load between autosized components.

If you have two chillers and you would like them to be sized equally, enter '0.5' as the sizing factor for each chiller.
