I am a beginner with E+
Now, I trying to simulate and represent a DOAS according to the manufacturer's specifications.
I expect to have quite the same electrical power between E+ output and the manufacturer's specifications, in the purpose to have an accurate consumption. But, there is a difference of 36%. E+ gives me 1420 W. The book says 2200 W (green box below). I have set the pressure, the airflow rate according to the book.
The manufacturer doesn't mention the fan efficiency so I checked the reference/brand of the fan, they say that efficiency = 0.45%

Did I do something wrong ? Do I miss something ? The "rated electric power" and "fan motor" (green box) should match ? The "supply fan delta pressure" is the "total static pressure" ?
Thank you for your feedback

Fan rated electric power shouldn't be the same as fan motor power, as you have to account for motor and drive efficiency. Still, they shouldn't be that far apart.

I don't expect to be exactly the same but close at least. The "rated electric power" should be more or less than "fan motor" specified in catalog ?
I have some doubt about the pressure, the "supply fan delta pressure" and the "total static pressure" have to be the same ?

Here there is a post about the pressure input to the fan models, I hope it helps: https://unmethours.com/question/14589/estimate-fan-pressure-rise-from-esp/

I read this post and its what I did. Input the total static pressure in the field "supply fan delta pressure". But it gives me a very low "rated electric power" compared to the manufacturer's book
