LoadProfile:Plant in AirLoopHVAC

asked 2019-06-19 09:07:13 -0500

updated 2019-06-19 09:07:54 -0500

Is it possible to use a LoadProfile:Plant object on the demand side of an AirLoopHVAC, to model the air flow requirements, instead of connecting the plant to a thermal zone?

In the InputOutput Reference they only mention the case of coupling it with a water loop, but there is no mention of air loops. Anyone tried it? Thanks

The plant load profile must be connected to a water loop using the inlet/outlet node fields and is also only called by the (water) plant. For these reasons this object cannot be connected to an air loop.
