Hi, I am using type 534_coiled to model a 2000 l thermal storage tank. This tank is heated by a hybrid PVT and air-water heat pump system, to produce space heating and domestic hot water. I know the exact inlet heights of the cited systems, but this tank does not allow me to set them, only to specify the number of ports. Please could someone indicate to me if there is any additional information to study in order to set these parameters? Cause when I plot the outputs I'm not sure if they correspond to, for example, the top temperature or the bottom temperature. Thanks

There are two version of the Type534 proforma. One uses a plugin application to allow user input of all of the component parameters (Version with Plug-in) and another that allows direct user input of a somewhat limited set of component parameters (Version without Plug-in). If you are using the version with the Plug-on you need to click the button on the lower left of the proforma window to activate the plugin (See Section of the SimulationStudio volume of the TRNSYS documentation set).
