I am currently working on a hospital in DesignBuilder. I need to know the heating and cooling loads(the amount of heat that needs to be added to or removed from a building) including the effects of solar gains, internal gains and ventilation loads. I think "Total cooling" in System Loads graph may be one of the results that I am looking for, but then where is the corresponding "Total heating" ? Also, what is the difference between "Total cooling" and "Zone ideal load air system total cooling rate"? The other question is, why nothing happens when I tick the boxes of "System Sensible Heating", "System Sensible Cooling", "System Latent Heating" and "System Latent Cooling" under System Loads colume in Detailed simulation results? I expected to see the results in System Loads graph. I am using a FCU 4-pipe, Water-cooled Chiller system. The software version is 6.1.0. Could anyone help me on these problem?

Have you found a solution for this? I have exactly the same problem interpreting those terms and visualization
