The EnergyPlus (8.7) SetpointManager:CondenserEnteringReset:Ideal will work with multiple towers (where the node is downstream of the branch) but appears limited to only one chiller.

Are there any creative ways around this limitation? I'd like to use this setpoint manager to control a two chiller setup.

The less fancy, but similar option, SetpointManager:CondenserEnteringReset, which requires user input for three curves to determine the CWT, also includes the note in the docs 'only works with one tower'. So it might work with multiple chillers. Is there any published guidance or help on how to generate the curves that this setpoint requires?

Looks like you might be able to achieve what you want with multiple chillers by using the CentralHeatPumpSystem object
