SimHVAC and convergence issue

I am modeling an office building seved by VAV systems. I am getting a huge amount of SimHVAC convergence issue. After investigating, it looks like these errors might be coming from the fact that I am using a SetpointManager:WarmestTemperatureFlow to control the supply air temperature, as when I switch to a Scheduled or OutdoorAirReset setpoint manager I don't have these issues. Also, it looks like my model fit case 3 from this article.

Is it possible to avoid these non-convergence issues?
