I want to set up an outdoor air pretreat air loop with heating/cooling coils and a constant speed fan supplying preconditioned air to other AHU's. How do I setup such primary and secondary air loop? I am wondering about how to connect the AHU's on the demand side. image description Can this be set up in OpenStudio and how?

EnergyPlus currently doesn't support an air loop serving multiple other air loops. There was work in that direction, but it appears to have stalled out.

See here for discussion of workarounds for that design.
