Hi @saravanan17

It looks like you added a "ZoneControl:Thermostat" to the zone "7788C8" but did not assign any zone HVAC equipment to this zone. Is this zone supposed to be connected to some sort of HVAC equipment?

If yes, you would need to add the relevant objects for "ZoneHVAC:EquipmentList" and "ZoneHVAC:EquipmentConnections" to the zone. (the relevant zone HVAC equipment would need to be added to the overall system branches if required)

If no, then you would need to delete the thermostat for this zone to be able to run the model.
