I am running the energyplus example file which is named as 'DesiccantCVRh'. I draw the system diagram in the power point as shown below. In the original model, the Outside Air Inlet Node 1 is outside air node and the temperature of the inlet air is the time varying outdoor ambient temperature based on the weather file. My question is if i want to make the temperature of Outside Air Inlet Node 1 as constant like 50 degree, 70 degree....during the whole simulation, how can i do it? What objects i need to add?

You can input schedules to hard set the conditions of the OutdoorAir:Node, especially Drybulb Temperature Schedule Name and Wetbulb Temperature Schedule Name.

So you create two Schedule:Constant (or Schedule:Compact) and reference them in the OutdoorAir:Node.

Thank you very much for your useful advice. You are perfectly correct. When I looked at the input and output document, I missed this point. Your suggestion saves my time. Thanks again.
