I am using Openstudio/Sketchup. I'm having some problem When I build the HVAC system.

Problem 1. I have 3 chillers and many FCU, I want to load each chiller 1 one by one such as, 0-200 ton chiller 1 ,200-400 ton chiller 2,400-600 chiller 3, but I do not know How to do by that way.

Problem 2. I want create more FCU in openstudio, and I create plant loop 1( supply 3 cooling tower and demand 3 chiller), continues I create plant loop 2 ( supply 3 chiller and demand more coil cooling), continues I create more air loop (supply a coil cooling and demand thermal zone).

I don't know if this is right. Please help me! Thank you.

@jacky this seems very similar to your other post about modeling chillers and FCUs in OpenStudio. Are these all questions for the same model? If so, I can try to merge the two posts. It would also help to upload your OSM file to Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. and share the URL for others to download the model and review.

You can also read the OpenStudio Application documentation for Thermal Zones and HVAC Systems for more guidance.
