Hi now i am modelling high rise buildings with energyplus. to cut computing load i decided to group zones with zonegroup and i input 20 as multiplier. however, energy use from air terminal was not multiplied for 20 zones whereas energy use of VRF or FCU was multiplied by the multiplier i input. How can i multiply energy use of air terminal using zonegroup?

If the HVAC equipment is autosized, it should all become 20x larger for zones with a 20x multiplier. This should work regardless of the system type. If the equipment is not autosized, then the user must manually scale up the pertinent values.
