Dear users, I found a problem when modeling chilled ceiling in DB, i don't know why my room temperature is always very high even when my chilled ceiling could deliver more than 100 W/m2(calculated with mass flowrate, temperature departure and return), and it's impossible according most of the chilled ceiling manufacturer. Where I made a mistake? Can someone help me? Kind regards Aleck

I want to upload my model but it dosen't work, I don't understand. Maybe it's too large? About 7MB.

@Aleck if attaching your model on UnmetHours is working, you could try saving it on Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc. and sharing the link to the model here for people to access.

Furthermor, I can't understand why there are many ceiling surface while look deep into the EnergyPlus file? By the way, i'm not familier with EnergyPlus IDFeditor. But i'm sure that it's not normal because there are only 2 spaces and i defined 1 thermal zone in DB. So there is only 2 ceiling surface. Only one reason can explain that : Circle Window in ceiling(roof) which cut the ceiling into multiple "sub-surface".
