I have to simulate a biodigester in E+. I started by assembling a thermal zone with thermal mass inside. The internal mass is water, occupying the total volume of the zone. But it gives me errors and the simulation does not advance.

Is there any other way to simulate this? Thank you very much!

Are you trying to use an EnergyPlus zone to be the biodigester itself? As in the zone contains organic material that will generate biogas and other material? Or the zone contains the biodigester which emits heat into the zone?

Theoretically, one should be able to add a large amount of thermal mass to a zone. What kind of errors did you get?
