Hi, I am trying to model a crankcase heater controller that contains three temperature sensors:

  1. compressor discharge temperature
  2. evaporator coil temperature
  3. outdoor air temperature

I can obtain outdoor drybulb temperature as an output using Output:Variable object. Does anyone know if I can get compressor discharge temperature and evaporator coil temperature as outputs?

I think it's possible if you use Coil:Cooling:DX because the component specifies Node Names Condenser Inlet Node Name (= comperssor discharge), Evaporator Inlet Node Name and Evaporator Outlet Node Name. I'm not sure what "evaporator coil temperature" means. Is it the inlet temperature of the coil or the average temperature or the entire coil? Anyway, please use Evaporator Inlet Node Name and/or Evaporator Outlet Node Name according to your purpose. You can output System Node Temperature of these Nodes.
