Hi there,

I want to model a DOAS system in E+, of which the configuration is as follows. However, we have encountered some problems when trying to implement the series desiccant wheel (the orange one in the figure) in the air loop. I tried adding a heat exchanger to the existing air loop, but E+ seems to not allow an object to be referred to twice in an air loop. I tried different heat exchanger objects but none worked. Anyone knows a workaround for this?

I am attaching the proposed air loop branch and the error message below.

Much appreciated!
