Generator Coolant Outlet Temperature | Generator Coolant Inlet Temperature [closed]

asked 2021-07-14 02:52:13 -0500


Is there any way to request both Generator Coolant Outlet Temperature and Generator Coolant Inlet Temperature as variables? I am using EnergyPlus 9.4

Many thanks, Angelo

Each Generator:### object in EnergyPlus has a unique list of output variables. For example, the Generator:InternalCombustionEngine object has 19 output variables while the Generator:CombustionTurbine object only has 3 output variables.

In general, to know what output variables are available in your EnergyPlus model (IDF), add the Output:VariableDictionary object and review the generated RDD output file. You can read more about this in posts here and here.
