Since 90.1-2016, DX DOAS units have ISMRE requirements to be rated per AHRI 920. While this is a great way of better comparing newer units, it is a packaged performance metric that as far as I can see, has no direct translation to EnergyPlus inputs.

In order to correctly account for DOAS capacity, the way I see I either can:

  • Try to back-calculate performance curves based on the 4 points from the standard conditions. I do not think this would be possible/accurate.
  • Ask the manufacturer for DX coil performance points: So far our rep has no idea if this is even available.

I do not see any issues on github regarding this metric, so I am reaching out to anybody for clues to look for clues.
