We are modelling buildings with high people density where latent heat gain cannot be ignored. Any idea how to implement latent heat gain with TRNSYS Type 56?

As far as i remember there is an option in the gains menu where you can specify the latent fraction.

Latent gains are added in Type56 as a humidity gain in kg/h. The input is on the gain definition window in TRNBuild.
