OpenStudio: Adding Coil:Cooling:DX:VariableSpeed as a component

asked 2021-01-19 15:41:21 -0600

updated 2021-04-13 10:23:43 -0600


Actually, I am currently working on a model in OpenStudioI, while the selected system is "Packaged Rooftop Heat Pump". Meantime, I was wondering if anyone could assist and let me know how to change the coil type from the default (Coil:Cooling:DX:SingleSpeed) to Coil:Cooling:DX:VariableSpeed into my OpenStudio model.

P.S.1: I know I can add such an object into my idf file, but I was wondering if I can have it in the OS model. P.S.2: I already checked my OS library and was not able to find such a component there. In addition, I checked Online BCL and didn't find it as a component or either a measure. is there anywhere else that I am missing to check?

Thanks, Mohammad

I do see that there is single speed, two speed, and two stage, but not variable speed. I filed an issue for this on the OpenStudio Coalition's GitHub page.

In the mean time the Create Variable Speed RTU measure may work for you.
