# How to solve these warnings regarding VRF HVAC?

I'm working with the OpenStudio Plugin to generate an IDF in order to use it as input in an EnergyPlus simulation.

I'm working with a 1-story building, with 5 rooms, a VRF System and 3 VRF Terminals.

After exporting the IDF, when I run the simulation I obtain these three warnings (all of them about the VRF System):

1. VRFCOOLCAPFT output is equal to 1.136 at rated conditions (instead of 1.0):

** Warning ** GetVRFInput: AirConditioner:VariableRefrigerantFlow="VRF SYSTEM" curve values
*   ~~~   ** ... Cooling Capacity Ratio Modifier Function of Low Temperature Curve Name = VRF SYSTEM
VRFCOOLCAPFT 1 output is not equal to 1.0 (+ or - 10%) at rated conditions.
**   ~~~   ** ... Curve output at rated conditions = 1.136

2. COOLINGEIRLOWPLR minimum value of X = 0.500 is out of range.

It must be <= Minimum Heat Pump Part-Load Ratio = 0.250.

** Warning ** GetVRFInput: AirConditioner:VariableRefrigerantFlow="VRF SYSTEM", invalid
**   ~~~   ** ...Cooling Energy Input Ratio Modifier Function of Low Part-Load Ratio Curve Name = VRF SYSTEM
COOLINGEIRLOWPLR 1 has out of range value.
**   ~~~   ** ...Curve minimum value of X = 0.500 must be <= Minimum Heat Pump Part-Load Ratio = 0.250.

3. HEATINGEIRLOWPLR minimum value of X = 0.500 is out of range.

It must be <= Minimum Heat Pump Part-Load Ratio = 0.250.

** Warning ** GetVRFInput: AirConditioner:VariableRefrigerantFlow="VRF SYSTEM", invalid
**   ~~~   ** ...Heating Energy Input Ratio Modifier Function of Low Part-Load Ratio Curve Name = VRF SYSTEM
HEATINGEIRLOWPLR 1 has out of range value.
**   ~~~   ** ...Curve minimum value of X = 0.500 must be <= Minimum Heat Pump Part-Load Ratio = 0.250.


So, finally, after the fatal error below (caused by the three warnings above):

**  Fatal  ** GetVRFInput: Errors found in getting AirConditioner:VariableRefrigerantFlow system input.
** Preceding condition(s) causes termination.


EnergyPlus terminates.

Is there anyone who could help me?

PS: If useful, I could attach here the IDF.
