Hello, I'm unable to obtain cooling loads or the cooling energy consumption in the simulation results, despite the heating load being visible.

Here's what I've checked so far:

  • I have verified that both heating and cooling loads are correctly assigned to thermal zones with reasonable setpoints.
  • I have reviewed the properties of the cooling coil to ensure that none of its values are set to zero.
  • I have compared heating and cooling schedules and the configuration of the coils, but I have not identified any significant differences that would explain why heating is visible while cooling remains elusive.

However, I see that "Cooling Minimum Air Flow" is set to 0 in the Thermal Zones>Cooling Sizing Parameters. I am not sure it has something with the problem. image description

A similar question was asked about two years ago. I tried to repeat the steps suggested in the responses, but the issue remains unresolved. Hence, I've decided to open a new question.

@gulce can you upload your model to Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. and then share a URL for others to download? That would help others provide better solutions.
