Hello everyone, I hope you are all in good health.

I wanted to present the ouput: compressor's power of a single speed dx and of multi-speed dx- cooling coil , is that possible separately other than whole coil electricity ?

Preface: this is assuming that you're using EnergyPlus or one of it's interfaces.

The cooling COP input field for both single-speed and multi-speed coils account for electricity use of both the compressor and condenser fan. EnergyPlus already generates an output variable for Cooling Coil Electric Power that is the electricity use of both the compressor and condenser fan. So, you could modify the COP input to remove the electricity use of the condenser fan so that the output variable only accounts for the electricity use of the compressor. However, to do this accurately, you should also update the three performance curves related to changes in COP over the simulation:
